ABSTRACT With the emergence of high-end smart phones/PDAs there is a growing opportunity to enrich mobile/pervasive services with semantic reasoning. This article presents novel strategies for optimising semantic reasoning for realising semantic applications and services on mobile devices. We have developed the mTableaux algorithm which optimises the reasoning process to facilitate service selection. We present comparative experimental results which show that mTableaux improves the performance and scalability of semantic reasoning for mobile devices.

    ABSTRACT: Service composition enables customizable services to be provided to the service consumers. Since the capabilities and the performances of mobile devices (e.g., smart phone, PDA, handheld media player) have improved, a mobile device can be utilized to interact with external mobile service providers towards providing composite Web service to remote clients. Existing approaches on mobile-hosted service composition are usually platform dependent, and rely on centralized infrastructure. Such approaches are not feasible in an open, mobile infrastructure-less environment, in which networked services are implemented using different technologies, devices are capable of dynamically joining or leaving the network, and a centralized management entity is nonexistent. This paper proposes a solution to enable mobile Web service composition in an open, infrastructure-less environment based on loosely coupled SOA techniques.

    ABSTRACT: Nowadays, with the advancement in mobile technologies, the use of web services has seen an explosion in interest for mobile comput-ing environment. However, the heavyweight nature of conventional web services to be deployed on mobile devices brings new challenges in mo-bile computing in the coming future. Web services technology and mobile computing domains are converging at their intersection which leads to Mobile Web Services (MWS) which enables the service access in users' mobile device. As the numbers of web services are increasing dramati-cally, the web service discovery becomes more important to discover the usable web services in effective and efficient manner. This paper discusses an overview of mobile challenges in MWS recent research, and a summary of the issues. Moreover, current approaches of Mobile Web Services Dis-covery are classified and these approaches are compared to some criteria. The results of this study will help researchers to deliver more applicable solutions with the most appropriate approaches for Mobile Web Services Discovery.

    ABSTRACT: Due to significant improvements in the capabilities of small devices such as PDAs and smart phones, these devices can not only consume but also provide Web Services. The dynamic nature of mobile environment means that users need accurate and fast approaches for service discovery. In order achieve high accuracy semantic languages can be used in conjunction with logic reasoners. Since powerful broker nodes are not always available (due to lack of long range connectivity), create a bottleneck (since mobile devices are all trying to access the same server) and single point of failure (in the case that a central server fails), on-board mobile reasoning must be supported. However, reasoners are notoriously resource intensive and do not scale to small devices. Therefore, in this paper we provide an efficient mobile reasoner which relaxes the current strict and complete matching approaches to support anytime reasoning. Our approach matches the most important request conditions (deemed by the user) first and provides a degree of match and confidence result to the user. We provide a prototype implementation and performance evaluation of our work.
