Towards Flexible Interface Mediation for Dynamic Service Invocations

Date Added: Sep 2009

One of the main benefits of service-based systems is the loose coupling of components, which increases flexibility during the selection of internal and external business partners. However, currently this flexibility is severely limited by the fact that components have to provide not only the same functionality, but do so via virtually the same inter-face. Invocation-level mediation may be used to overcome this issue - by using mediation interface differences can be resolved transparently at runtime.
