  5. 5. What is a Service-Oriented Architecture? <ul><li>Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This term is increasingly used to refer to an architectural style of building reliable distributed systems that deliver functionality as services , with the additional emphasis on loose coupling between interacting services. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Service </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A software component participating in a service-oriented architecture that provides functionality and/or participates in realizing one or more capabilities . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>[OGSA Glossary v1.0] </li></ul>
  6. 6. What is a Service? <ul><li>In computing terms, a ‘service’ is simply a function that can be invoked via a well-defined remote interface. </li></ul><ul><li>[OGSI primer] </li></ul><ul><li>Systems interact with a Web service in a manner prescribed by its description using SOAP messages, typically conveyed using HTTP with an XML serialization in conjunction with other Web-related standards. </li></ul><ul><li>[W3C – Web Services Architecture] </li></ul>
  7. 7. Benefits of Web Services & SOA <ul><li>Benefits </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Allows us to hide the details of how a service is implemented; only URL and data types are required </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is largely irrelevant to the client whether the service is developed with Java or ASP.NET or if it is running on Windows, Linux or any other platform </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Key Service Oriented Principles </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Composable </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Simple parts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intended for distributed systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Acknowledgement of boundaries </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. SOA Triangle Service Registry Service Requestor Service Provider Find (Discover) Publish Bind (Interact) Service Description
  9. 9. Web services stack Application rpcrouter SOAP HTTP TCP/IP Infrastructure (Data link) Application (servlet) Web server SOAP HTTP TCP/IP Infrastructure (Data link)
  10. 10. SOAP <ul><li>“ SOAP provides a simple lightweight mechanism for exchanging structured and typed information between peers in a decentralized, distributed environment using XML” [Microsoft] </li></ul>
  11. 11. SOAP over HTTP HTTP Headers <soap:Envelope> <soap:Header> XML… </soap:Header> <soap:Body> XML payload… </soap:Body> </soap:Envelope> SOAP Envelope Header Body Message Pay Load
  12. 12. SOAP Structure <ul><li>Envelope – contains the entire SOAP message. </li></ul><ul><li>Header – (optional) contains header information. </li></ul><ul><li>Body – contains the application pay load. </li></ul><ul><li>Message Payload – the part of the message that is intended for the application. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Sample SOAP <ul><li>< SOAP-ENV:Envelope </li></ul><ul><li>xmlns:SOAP-ENV=“” </li></ul><ul><li>xmlns:SOAP-ENC=“” </li></ul><ul><li>SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle=“”> </li></ul><ul><li>< SOAP-ENV:Body > </li></ul><ul><li>< getHostname /> </li></ul><ul><li></ SOAP-ENV:Body > </li></ul><ul><li></ SOAP-ENV:Envelope > </li></ul><ul><li>Invokes the “getHostname” operation on the Web service. </li></ul>
  14. 14. OGSA WSRF Base Profile 1.0 <ul><li>Key parts mandated in the profile: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Addressing: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>WS-Addressing endpoint references and places some constraints on their structure, thus enabling interoperable addressing. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource Properties: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>resource must support certain resource properties, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>support for certain operations that are optional in the WS-ResourceProperties specifications. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource Lifetime: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ImmediateResourceTermination portType, and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ScheduledResourceTermination portType (and their associated operations and properties). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Base Notification: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NotificationProducer portType (and its associated operations and properties to provide notification using a publish/subscribe pattern). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Base Faults: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>WS-BaseFaults (and extends the fault structure). </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 15. WS-Addressing <ul><li>Before WS-Addressing </li></ul><ul><li>WS-Addressing specification </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Endpoint References </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>EPRs and SOAP </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Message Addressing Properties (headers) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>To, From, ReplyTo, FaultTo, Action, MessageID, RelatesTo. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reference parameters. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Anonymous & None URI s. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Before WS-Addressing <ul><li>To locate a web service had to ask for the URL of the endpoint or the WSDL . </li></ul><ul><li>Plus might need to identify the web services instance. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Could use a URL with a session identifier (e.g. appending ?resourceID=123). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Could add extra information in SOAP headers, but now no longer bound to one specific transport protocol. </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Endpoint References (EPRs) <ul><li>Web service endpoint is a entity to which Web service messages can be addressed. </li></ul><ul><li>Endpoint references convey the information needed to address a Web service endpoint. </li></ul><ul><li>EPR is basically a URL wrapped by some XML elements. </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:EndpointReference> </li></ul><ul><ul><li><wsa:Address> xs:anyURI </wsa:Address> (1..1) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><wsa:ReferenceParameters> xs:any *</wsa:ReferenceParameters> ? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><wsa:Metadata> xs:any *</wsa:Metadata>? </li></ul></ul><ul><li></wsa:EndpointReference> </li></ul>
  18. 18. EPRs and SOAP <ul><li>How does a Service return a reference to a new entity? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Does so by returning an EPR: </li></ul></ul><ul><li>E.g. An EPR with an added ReferenceParameters element. </li></ul><ul><li><soap:Envelope ...> </li></ul><ul><li><soap:Body> </li></ul><ul><li><widget:createWidgetResponse> </li></ul><ul><li><widget:widgetReference> </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:Address>http://host/WidgetService</wsa:Address> </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:Reference Parameters > </li></ul><ul><li><widget:resourceID>123</widget:resourceID> </li></ul><ul><li></wsa:Reference Parameters > </li></ul><ul><li></widget:widgetReference> </li></ul><ul><li></widget:createWidgetResponse> </li></ul><ul><li></soap:Body> </li></ul><ul><li></soap:Envelope> </li></ul>
  19. 19. Message Addressing Properties <ul><li>To </li></ul><ul><li>Target Web service's URI. Typically same as the HTTP request's URL, but it is not required to be. </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:To> http://host/WidgetService </wsa:To> </li></ul><ul><li>The To header should be the same value as the <wsa:Address> element when using an EPR. </li></ul><ul><li>From </li></ul><ul><li>EPR of the message's (source) sender. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used in cases where an acknowledgement needs to be sent back to the sender (WS-ReliableMessage). </li></ul></ul><ul><li><wsa:From> </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:Address> http://client/myClient </wsa:Address> </li></ul><ul><li></wsa:From> </li></ul>
  20. 20. Message Addressing (cont.) <ul><li>ReplyTo </li></ul><ul><li>Any response from the Web service should be sent to the ReplyTo EPR. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>From and ReplyTo can be two distinct EPRs, the message's sender might not be the endpoint that is meant to receive the response. </li></ul></ul><ul><li><wsa:ReplyTo> </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:Address> http://client/myReceiver </wsa:Address> </li></ul><ul><li></wsa:ReplyTo> </li></ul><ul><li>FaultTo </li></ul><ul><li>If the response to a message is a SOAP fault, the fault should be sent to the EPR in the FaultTo header. </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:FaultTo> </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:Address> http://client/FaultCatcher </wsa:Address> </li></ul><ul><li></wsa:FaultTo> </li></ul>
  21. 21. Message Addressing (cont. 2) <ul><li>MessageID </li></ul><ul><li>The MessageID is a URI that uniquely identifies a message. </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:MessageID>urn:uuid:12-34-56-78</wsa:MessageID> </li></ul><ul><li>Action </li></ul><ul><li>The Action header is the in-envelope version of the SOAP HTTP Action header. REQUIRED . </li></ul><ul><li><wsa:Action> http://host/widgetOp </wsa:Action> </li></ul><ul><li>RelatesTo </li></ul><ul><li>Typically used on response messages to indicate that it is related to a previously-known message and to define that relationship. </li></ul><ul><ul><li><wsa:RelatesTo RelationshipType=&quot;wsa:Response&quot;> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>urn:uuid:12-34-56-78 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li></wsa:RelatesTo> </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Constructing SOAP Messages <ul><li><wsa:Address> value is copied into the <wsa:To> header block. </li></ul><ul><li>Reference parameters. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each element in <wsa:ReferenceParameters> (including all of that elements children, attributes and namespaces) is copied literally as header blocks in the SOAP message. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Each header block added as a result of the above rule is annotated with wsa:IsReferenceParameter = ‘true’. </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Anonymous & None URI s <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>In all of the headers can use a special anonymous URI. </li></ul><ul><li>When you use this URI, you are indicating that there is no real endpoint available for this address. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Messages sent to EPRs whose address is this value MUST be discarded. </li></ul><ul><li>Typically used to designate that no reply or fault message should be sent. </li></ul>
  24. 24. WS-Addressing <ul><li>WS-Addressing specification – </li></ul><ul><ul><li>requires the Address element, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>but resourceID is specific to the WidgetService. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SOAP envelope of future requests to this EPR would take the form: </li></ul><ul><ul><li><soap:Envelope...> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><soap:Header> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><wsa:To> http://host/WidgetService </wsa:To> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><widget:resourceID wsa:IsReferenceParameter=true > </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> 123 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li></widget:resourceID> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li></soap:Header> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><soap:Body> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>... </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li></soap:Body> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li></soap:Envelope> </li></ul></ul>

  26. 26. Web Services Resource Framework <ul><li>Stateful Resources </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Web service itself (front end) is stateless. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maintains state in a back-end. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service request identifies the specific resource. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>WSRF is for Persistent State (stateful resource) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One message exchange produces a long-lived change in state which affects other message exchanges. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. WSRF Architecture <ul><li>A stateful (WS) resource </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is a repository for persistent state </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Like an object in an object-oriented architecture. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Has state that comprises a set of state data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each item of state data is a resource property. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A resource property is expressible as an XML document, which can in principle be retrieved and updated. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E.g. Bank Account has properties: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Balance owed, Credit limit, Latest statement, … </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Differences from Object-Oriented Architecture </li></ul><ul><ul><li>O-O object has just one interface, and is defined by the operations on it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The type of a WS-resource is </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The type of its resource properties document </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Not the signatures of its operations </li></ul></ul></ul>
  28. 28. WSRF Architecture <ul><li>A stateful (WS) resource </li></ul><ul><ul><li>… . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Has a well-defined life-cycle – creation and destruction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Destruction can be explicit or scheduled </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be known and acted upon by one or more Web Services </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Has a globally unique identifier – </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Can be passed between services to identify the resource </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is associated with one or more web services, providing interfaces for manipulating it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A WS-Resource comprises: its service; the resource itself </li></ul></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  29. 29. Running Example <ul><li>Seat Booking System for a Specific Event </li></ul><ul><li>Resource – Event6 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Properties </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Places – number of seats in total </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Held – number of seats with provisional bookings </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Booked – number of seats with confirmed bookings </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>End-point – </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Operations </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get – returns the resource properties </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reserve – creates a reservation resource </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>… . </li></ul></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Running Example <ul><li>Resource – Reservation (i.e. a booking) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Properties – </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>RNo – reservation number Identifier, not an actual property </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Firm - number of seats with confirmed booking </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hold – number of seats with provisional booking </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Seats – list of seat numbers allocated </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Arrival – expected time of arrival </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>End-point - </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Operations </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get – retrieve the properties </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SetArrival – change/set the Arrival property </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Change – reset reservation properties (firm=n; hold=m) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>… . </li></ul></ul></ul>
  31. 31. Referencing <ul><li>Resource-qualified endpoint reference – the service address and specific resource identifier – part of WS-Addressing Standard. </li></ul><ul><li>If service has only one resource instance (1:1) don’t need to include resource identifier in address. </li></ul> places: 120 held: 6 booked: 8 1:* reserve(3, “hold”) firm:0 hold:3 seats: K1, K2, K3 arrival: nil create ( :: X3) Resource qualified End-point reference 1:1 Change(Firm=2, Hold=0) <ul><li>RNo: X3 </li></ul> :: X3

  70. 70. Naming definitions <ul><li>“ Name” - attribute used to identify an entity. In OGSA-naming, 3 types: human-oriented names, abstract names, and addresses. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Human-oriented name” - a naming scheme designed to be easily interpreted by humans (e.g. human-readable and human-parsable). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Abstract name” - persistent name suitable for machine processing that does not necessarily contain location information. Abstract names are bound to addresses. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Address” - specifies the location of an entity. </li></ul><ul><li>Additionally, </li></ul><ul><li>“ Resolution” – Name resolution is the mapping of human names to abstract names, which are then mapped to some form of address. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>E.g. A name resolution function could be: Address Resolve(AbstractName); </li></ul></ul>
  71. 71. Requirements on names <ul><li>Names and naming schemes need to: </li></ul><ul><li>Be transmitted and resolved in a new context. </li></ul><ul><li>Name all entities in the universe of discourse that need naming. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow autonomous allocation of names - it is solely the responsibility of a name issuing authority to determine conditions under which it will issue a name. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow scalable distributed name resolution. </li></ul><ul><li>Be secure and reliable – there must be no spoofing of the naming service and no impersonating of names. It must support digital signatures, encryption and non-repudiation. </li></ul><ul><li>Be robust and trusted - data confidentiality and privacy need to be included. </li></ul><ul><li>Have global scope - it needs to have the same meaning everywhere, extensible & internationalisable. </li></ul><ul><li>Globally unique – the same name will never (to best probability affordable) be assigned to two different objects. </li></ul>
  72. 72. Existing naming schemes <ul><li>Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) - a string used for identifying an abstract or physical resource in a web application. </li></ul><ul><li>Uniform Resource Locator (URL) - the address of an Internet resource named as a combination of a DNS name and local name. </li></ul><ul><li>Uniform Resource Name (URN) - a subset of URI that defines a namespace registration mechanism for persistent namespaces under URI. E.g. urn:nextgrid:wp1:usecase:wp3:20050427:FinancialScenario </li></ul><ul><li>Universally-unique identifier (UUID) / Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) - 128 bits long, and can provide a guarantee of uniqueness. E.g. f81d4fae-7dec-11d0-a765-00a0c91e6bf6 . </li></ul><ul><li>Life Science Identifiers (LSIDs) - persistent, location-independent, resource identifiers for uniquely naming biologically significant resources. E.g. . </li></ul><ul><li>Extensible Resource Identifier (XRI) - built directly on top of URI & IRI specifications. Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>xri://*agency*department/!(urn:ISBN:0-395-36341-1) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>xri://@!9990!A58F!1C3D/!(urn:ISBN:0-395-36341-1) </li></ul></ul>
  73. 73. Existing naming schemes <ul><li>Endpoint reference (EPR) – a WS-Addressing construct that identifies a message destination. In WSRF an EPR conveys the information needed to identify or reference a stateful resource. </li></ul><ul><li>WS-Naming – a profile on top of the WS-Addressing specification, where additional elements AbstractName and ReferenceResolver are included in the MetaData element of a WS-Addressing Endpoint Reference. </li></ul><ul><li>Resource Namespace Service (RNS) - RNS primarily addresses the human-readable level rather than the abstract level. Intended to facilitate namespace services for a wide variety of Grid applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Domain Name Service (DNS) – primarily designed for mapping domain names into IP Addresses for network routing purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>X.500 / LDAP - X.500 defines a hierarchical data and information model with a set of protocols to allow global name lookup and search. LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a simpler protocol aimed at being easier to implement. </li></ul><ul><li> - a general-purpose global name service that allows secured name resolution and administration over networks such as the Internet. It manages handles, which are unique names for digital objects and other Internet resources. </li></ul>
  74. 74. Overview of the Handle syntax <ul><li>Handle System architecture defines a hierarchical service model. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Single top level service, known as the Global Handle Registry (GHR). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower levels known as Local Handle Services (LHS). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Syntax: </li></ul><ul><li><Handle> ::= <Handle Naming Authority> &quot;/&quot; <Handle Local Name> </li></ul><ul><li> meets all of the requirements for allowing scalable distributed name resolution, autonomous allocation of names, be secure, extensible, and guarantee global uniqueness. </li></ul><ul><li>Server and client software is available through its website, </li></ul><ul><li>Handle Proxy Sever is </li></ul>
