ABSTRACT

Amazon and Taobao publish product introduction online for customers’ personal choice and become the successful examples of modern service based on information and communication technologies. However, if they want to achieve a complex service through composing some simple services, the research of service composition platform is still rudi-mental. In order to achieve this goal, a virtualization-based service system development method is proposed. The service elements are described standardized as service component at first. Then the service component is virtualized to be a web service and is deployed on a service platform, which is similar to Amazon. Customers put forward their demands on this platform and the platform will auto-match and dispatch task to the component to build a real-world service system. Finally, an application in ocean logistics service is briefly introduced.
