026955 PLASTIC Providing lightweight & adaptable service technology Project Story ICT Results Final Report
Ubiquitous networking provides mobile users with unique features for seamlessly accessing networked services. However, service provisioning for B3G distributed computing platforms faces numerous challenges, among which are: developing services that can be easily deployed on a wide range of evolving infrastructures, from networks of devices to standalone wireless resource-constrained handheld devices; making services resource-aware so that they can benefit from networked resources and related services; and ensuring that users always experience the best Quality of Service (QoS) possible according to their specific situation. In addition, services must be provisioned in a way that guarantees their dependability. The PLASTIC project will develop a comprehensive provisioning platform for software services deployed over B3G networks. The PLASTIC platform will specifically integrate innovative methods and tools for service development, from design to validation, and a supporting middleware for service provisioning in B3G networks.
