Abstract: WEBGOP is a programming architecture for collaborative Web services using Graph Oriented Programming. The motivation of the project comes from the realization of the lack of support for the integration of collaborative Web services. Inherently, the Web is based on a classical client-server mode in essence without much collaborative effort involving more than the end-to-end communicating entities. The aim of WEBGOP is to extend the Web from a client-server system to a structured multi-point system. A graph abstraction of network provides the structure for the integration of Web services and facilities their configuration and programming. Using WEBGOP, a logical graph representing a virtual overlay network over the Internet is created to link up collaborative Web services. Web services are individually or jointly invoked either through unicast or multicast messages within the overlay network. All messages are based on Small Object Access Protocol. This forms an extension of Hypertext Transfer Protocol to support distributed invocation of Web services. The Web services on different servers work collaboratively for a multi-point network application. This project provides a structured integration of Web services by extending the support of intermediary processing in a multi-point service. It also provides a rich network programming interface for a new class of integrated Web applications while retaining the use of Internet Protocol and Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
