Architecting an SOA-Based System for Sharing of Peripheral Network Resources
A number of new developments are being made in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field and one of such is the adoption of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), which not only allows humans to communicate with software services but also facilitates communication between different computing agents. At the same time ICT is increasingly being adopted as an enabler for economic development within Marginalized Rural Areas (MRAs) where resources are scarce and infrastructure is limited. The challenge of limited resources (e.g. peripheral devices) in MRAs can be addressed through the implementation of services that enable the sharing of such limited resources.
