  • Change Propagation Analysis and Prediction in Process Choreographies
    • Authors: Walid Fdhila, Stefanie Rinderle-Ma, Conrad Indiono
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Volume 24, Issue 03, September 2015.
      Business process collaborations among multiple partners require particular considerations regarding flexibility and change management. Indeed, each change or process redesign originated by a partner may cause ripple effects on other partners participating in the choreography. Consequently, a change request could spread over partners in an unexpected way with relevant costs due to its transitivity (e.g. in supply chains). In order to avoid costly negotiations or propagation failures, understanding this behavior becomes critical. This paper focuses on analyzing the behavior of change requests in process choreographies, i.e. the change propagation behavior. The input data might be available in two different formats, i.e. as change logs or change propagation logs (CPs). In order to understand the data and to explore potential analysis models and techniques, we employ exploratory data analysis as well as analysis techniques from process mining and change management to simulation data. The results yield the requirements for designing a mining algorithm that derives the propagation behavior behind change logs. This algorithm is a memetic algorithm that is based on different heuristics. Its feasibility is shown based on a comparison with the other mining techniques.

  • Mapping Discovery Over Revealing Schemas
    • Authors: Verena Kantere, Dimos Bousounis, Timos Sellis
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print.
      In a world of wide-scale information sharing, data are described in different formats, i.e. data structures, values and schemas. Querying such sources entails techniques that can bridge the data formats. Some existing techniques deal with schema mapping and view complementary aspects of the problem. Important ones, consider producing all the possible mappings for a pair of schemas, insinuating accompanying semantics in the mappings and adapting correct mappings as schemas evolve. In this work, we consider the problem of discovering mappings as schemas of autonomous sources are gradually revealed. Using as an example setting an overlay of peer databases, we present a schema mapping solution that discovers correct mappings as peer schemas are gradually revealed to remote peers. Mapping discovery is schema-centric and incorporates new semantics as they are unveiled. Mapping experience is reused and possible mappings are ranked so that the best choice is presented to the user. The experimental study confirms the suitability of the proposed solution to dynamic settings of heterogeneous sources.

  • Designing Redundancy-Free XML Schema: A Smallest Closure Approach
    • Authors: Wai Yan Mok, Joseph Fong, Kenneth Wong
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print.
      XML has too many low-level details that hinder high-level conceptual design. We therefore propose DTD graphs and XSD graphs as a mean for conceptual modeling of XML applications. Similar to document type definitions (DTDs) and XML schema definitions (XSDs), DTD graphs and XSD graphs are trees, and as such they can easily be mapped to DTDs and XSDs for implementation. Unlike DTDs and XSDs, DTD graphs and XSD graphs capture various high-level data semantics such as cardinality, ISA, participation, aggregation, categorization, and n-ary relationship. Furthermore, this paper also presents transformation rules between DTDs and a large class of XML Schemas and an algorithm that inputs users' requirements and outputs a DTD graph that has a minimum number of redundancy-free fragments. As a result of these good properties, the resulting DTD or XSD facilitates query processing and update.

  • Evaluating Cloud Service Elasticity Behavior
    • Authors: Georgiana Copil, Hong-Linh Truong, Daniel Moldovan, Schahram Dustdar, Demetris Trihinas, George Pallis, Marios D. Dikaiakos
      Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print.
      To optimize the cost and performance of complex cloud services under dynamic requirements, workflows and diverse cloud offerings, we rely on different elasticity control processes. An elasticity control process, when being enforced, produces effects in different parts of the cloud service. These effects normally evolve in time and depend on workload characteristics, and on the actions within the elasticity control process enforced. Therefore, understanding the effects on the behavior of the cloud service is of utter importance for runtime decision-making process, when controlling cloud service elasticity. In this paper, we present a novel methodology and a framework for estimating and evaluating cloud service elasticity behaviors. To estimate the elasticity behavior, we collect information concerning service structure, deployment, service runtime, control processes, and cloud infrastructure. Based on this information, we utilize clustering techniques to identify cloud service elasticity behavior, in time, and for different parts of the service. Knowledge about such behavior is utilized within a cloud service elasticity controller to substantially improve the selection and execution of elasticity control processes. These elasticity behavior estimations are successfully being used by our elasticity controller, in order to improve runtime decision quality. We evaluate our framework with three real-world cloud services in different application domains. Experiments show that we are able to estimate the behavior in 89.5% of the cases. Moreover, we have observed improvements in our elasticity controller, which takes better control decisions, and does not exhibit control oscillations.

  • Compensation and Convergence — Comparing and Combining Deployment
           Automation Approaches
    • Abstract: International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, Ahead of Print.
      Leading paradigms to develop, deploy, and operate applications such as continuous delivery, configuration management, and the merge of development and operations (DevOps) are the foundation for various techniques and tools to implement automated deployment. To make such applications available for users and customers, these approaches are typically used in conjunction with Cloud computing to automatically provision and manage underlying resources such as storage and virtual servers. A major class of these automation approaches follow the idea of converging toward a desired state of a resource (e.g. a middleware component deployed on a virtual machine). This is achieved by repeatedly executing idempotent scripts to reach the desired state. Because of major drawbacks of this approach, we discuss an alternative deployment automation approach based on compensation and fine-grained snapshots using container virtualization. We perform an evaluation comparing both approaches in terms of difficulties at design time and performance at runtime. Moreover, we discuss concepts, strategies, and implementations to effectively combine different deployment automation approaches.
