Web Services in Ad-Hoc and Mobile Infrastructure

Introduction | Publications |

Introduction

Web services are emerging as the architecture for future service internetworking. At present, they are mainly used for systems where service providers are located in the fixed network and have an access to virtually unlimited resources regarding memory, processing capacity and bandwidth. Clients, on the other hand, can be located anywhere, including mobile devices. However, the transformation of web service techniques to an ad-hoc environment introduces a challenge that has not yet been solved conclusively. In this initiative, we build on top of experiences learned in Tekes-funded projects SESSI (2004-2005), and GO-MM (2000-2005), where ad-hoc networking and networked user interfaces have been studied, but extend the scope to web services.

The purpose of the initiative is to build a web-service based networking infrastructure, which would enable ad-hoc web services and their interworking with web services in fixed networks. The infrastructure will be encapsulated into a tool environment, which will be made publicly available via open source community. A proof-of-concept business application is explored and a respective technical implementation will be developed for a selected line of business, i.e., airline passenger transport. The developed web service techniques are general and apply to many business areas including transport and logistics, traveling, trade fairs, concerts and other mass events; enterprise services can also be supported like marketing, eBusiness and customer relationship management. The project may select other use-cases to be analyzed, to be later decided in the steering group.

Wesahmi is a joint project by University of Helsinki, Tampere University of Technology, and Helsinki University of Technology. The latter hosts official website.
