Adaptive Service Migration and Transaction Processing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Christoph Reinke


In this paper, we make a case for service oriented architectures (SOAs) for the programming of wireless sensor networks. For the successful usage of SOAs, techniques like replication and migration of services are a prerequisite. We outline use cases for service migration and show that transaction processing capabilities are necessary for enabling stateful and consistent service migration in wireless sensor networks. We therefore compare different commit protocols with our own and give first evaluation results.

Our goal is the adaptive selection of commit protocol, routing protocol and concurrency control protocol in dependency of the required consistency and the given network context to provide the most efficient service migration possible. We describe our approaches and preliminary results.
