Collecting and Querying Distributed Traces of Composite Service Executions

Fauvet, Marie-Christine, Dumas, Marlon, & Benatallah, Boualem (2002) Collecting and Querying Distributed Traces of Composite Service Executions.

The development of new Web services by composition of existing ones is becoming a widespread approach to realise business-to-business collaborations. The composite services obtained in this way are then eventually used in other compositions. Given the dynamic nature of the Web, this recursive composition of services rapidly leads to intricate dependencies between them. On the other hand, businesses need to track the executions of their composite services in order to ensure explainability in case of failure and to support decision making. This paper deals with the issue of tracing composite service executions over the Web. It describes a model and an XML representation of service execution traces, an approach for collecting and storing these traces in a distributed environment, and an approach to evaluate queries over distributed repositories of traces.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
