Organizations are increasingly using the Web not only to sell products
and deliver information, but also for providing their services to
businesses and individual customers. Typically, the provision of such
services by organizations requires the construction of applications
that integrate existing enterprise information systems to offer new
business functions. Organizations need to ensure that these services
are available, scalable and also autonomic to guarantee that user
interactions are promptly processed even under highly volatile
conditions. In most cases, organizations use application servers with a
multi-tier architecture for the delivery of their services. In the
following, we will refer to services not relying on other web services
as Basic Services (BSs). The presence of a wide variety of BSs over the
Internet has created an exciting new business opportunity of providing
value added, inter-organizational services by composing multiple BSs
into new Composite Services (CSs). The Adapt project aims to provide
autonomic support for both basic and composite web services.
