ADAPTIVE SYNCHRONIZATION OF BUSINESS OBJECTS IN SERVICE ORIENTED ARCHITECTURES

Abstract

Business applications such as supply chain management and enterprise relationship management use business objects (BOs) for data containers. The BOs are cached at the middle-tier since the applications are hosted on application servers within a multi-tier architecture. The applications are replicated to achieve scalability and fast local access for the clients. Therefore, replica control for the BOs is mandatory to fulfill consistency requirements. However, following the service-oriented architecture the synchronization of BOs through standardized services is time consuming and can be optimized. In this paper, a solution is presented that allows an adaptive synchronization for business objects based on profiling. A BO and system profiling enables an efficient synchronization by an appropriate configuration of the replication strategy. A cost model based on an experimental evaluation allows to find e.g., the trade-off of sending full BO copies or just delta synchronization messages. The proposed solution is evaluated by temporal consistency constraints for BOs. Finally, an initial configuration of the replication strategy and an adaption during runtime is applicable based on constantly updated profiles.
