The dynamic nature of mobile ad hoc networks poses fundamental challenges to the design of service composition schemes that can minimize the effect of service disruptions. Although improving reliability has been a topic of extensive research in mobile ad hoc networks, little work has considered service deliveries spanning multiple components. Moreover, service composition strategies proposed for wireline networks are poorly suited for wireless ad hoc networks due to their highly dynamic nature. This paper proposes a new service composition and recovery framework designed to achieve minimum service disruptions for mobile ad hoc networks.
