Providing and Evaluating the Mobile Web Service Distribution Mechanisms Using Fuzzy Logic

Abstract—providing adaptive resource intensive Web services from mobile hosts needs to be done in a rather light-weight manner to allow continuous service provisioning. Processing and communication will drain the battery rapidly; hence both should be kept at a minimum. This paper describes the outcomes of an investigation into offloading and migration mechanisms that facilitate provision of adaptive and distributed mobile Web services. The investigation goes through three phases. The first phase integrates these mechanisms with the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Representational State Transfer (REST) architectures producing extended mobile Web service frameworks. This phase is achieved by the implementation of a prototype that allows performance evaluation of both extended frameworks. The evaluation of the load and performance of the distributed services is taking place using resource intensive applications. The results presented show that basing distributed mobilehosted services on REST is more suitable than using SOAP as underlying Web service infrastructure. The second phase relies on the outperforming REST-based framework to examine four distinct strategies for mobile Web service distribution mechanisms. In the last phase, evaluation results of the second phase are interpreted as Fuzzy Logic rules. These rule sets are used to trigger and control offloading schemes.
