Abstract

Internet has evolved with the passage of time and today it is morphed into a widely distributed computing platform. The concepts like Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) have seen their development and materialisation as an integral part of this evolution. Though, SOA brings lot of good things, service components in SOA are usually bound to the execution environment where they have been started. They are not able to relocate to another equivalent environment when required, thereby faulting on promises with respect to performance and reliability. This is an attempt to propose a solution to this problem by enabling mobility of service components by building a "Mobile Services Framework", while maintaining the current state of these components. Capability of stateful migration also makes these service components "autonomous" and improves their overall applicability in numerous scenarios.
