Mobile Service Platforms Cluster, White Paper - Service Lifecycle Management

Funded under: FP6

Abstract

The ability to effectively manage the different steps of the service lifecycle is fundamental to the success of mobile service platforms. Indeed, while service lifecycle has been traditionally viewed as largely isolated steps, the need to take into account the changing mobile environment and the distribution of resources and service components is leading to stronger intertwining. This white paper presents the work on service lifecycle management carried out within projects of the Mobile Services Platform cluster. Specifically, the problems of service creation, monitoring, validation, deployment, discovery and composition in B3G networks are addressed. While these projects have investigated the same research domains, the variations in the targeted application domains or in the underlying infrastructure have lead to different approaches and solutions.
This white paper was produced as a result of work in the Mobile Service Platforms (MSP) cluster of IST FP6 projects. The MSP cluster is part of the Sixth Framework Program of European research activities IST (Information Society Technologies). The cluster covers all work providing elements of platforms, which facilitate the development and deployment of mobile services. The cluster provides a forum to facilitate knowledge sharing on all aspects of B3G service platform technologies. The problem space includes: hiding the heterogeneous service execution platforms, managing the personal communication sphere (devices, groups, networks), creating autonomous systems, context/knowledge management, automatic service composition, end-user/3rd party service development environments, service roaming etc.
