Modeling and Multi-agent Specification of IF-Based Distributed Goal Ontologies

The concept of service is central in the design of distributed systems. In this approach for example, the web is developing web services and grid services. Nowadays, it is essential to take into account the crucial aspects of the dynamic services, that is to say their ability to adapt and to be composed in order to complete their task. To this end, the first part of the present paper aims to describe the implementation of a methodology which deals the automatic composition of services in distributed systems. Each service is related to a goal and is represented by a functional model called an Ontology. The model relies on a core reasoning process between interacting functional components of the complex system following the Information Flow (IF) approach. Afterwards, in the second part, we propose an algorithm describing the mechanism of the dynamic composition, basing on the first part and using Multi Agent System (MAS), where the agents support the functional components of the complex systems.
