Abstract:


FrSeC is a framework for the provision and composition of trustworthy context-dependent services. To support FrSeC, this paper introduces the ConfiguredService Description Language (CSDL) and the ConfiguredService Query Language (CSQL). CSDL is an XML based language for the description of ConfiguredServices by service providers. This description is published through service registries to enable the discovery of these services. ConfiguredService is a package in which the service contract, functionality, nonfunctional properties are bundled with the associated contextual conditions. CSQL is another XML based language that can be used by service requester to query the service registry for available ConfiguredServices. A case study is also presented to illustrate the use of CSDL and CSQL.
