ENHANCING ENTERPRISE COLLABORATION USING CONTEXT-AWARE SERVICE BASED ON ASPECTS

Abstract

In fast changing markets, dynamic collaboration ability involves establishing and "enacting" business relationships in an adaptive way taking into account context changes. This relies on using adaptable and flexible IT platforms. Service orientation can address this challenge. Accordingly, collaborative processes can be implemented as a composition of a set of services. However, combining "directly" elementary IT services is a hard task and presents risks in both service provider and user sides. In this paper we present a high-level structure called Service Domain which orchestrates a set a of related IT services based on BPEL specifications. To ensure the Service Domain adaptability to context changes our approach aims to prove the benefits of bringing Aspect Oriented Programming.
