Recovery for Web Service Conversations

Increasingly, global business relies on the exchange of information between web services. It is crucial that these services correctly exchange messages. Currently, unexpected errors are fixed in an ad-hoc manner, like sanitizing the database and restarting the application. A computer science student from the University of Toronto will work with IBM are their Toronto Centre for Advanced Studies on a runtime monitoring framework that, once an error is detected, will suggest possible sequences of actions (recovery plans) that will return the system to a non-error state (or terminate the process if such a sequence is not available)
