licas 4.17.1

An open source framework for building service-based network (Internet-based) communication for self-optimizing autonomic services
Licas is an autonomic service communication utility that allows the user to create service based networks that can be self-optimized/self organized.

Furthermore, Licas allows its users to integrate dynamic linking between services and message passing.

Being developed using the Java programming language, Licas is a cross-platform utility that can be used on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Main features:

  • The capability to build distributed networks of autonomic service-based components.
  • Permanent and dynamic linking mechanisms to construct the network architecture.
  • Autonomic self-organization through a dynamic linking mechanism.
  • Password protection of the services, providing some level of security.
  • Remote communication capabilities through an XML-RPC message passing mechanism.
  • Remote object loading through a Java UrlClassLoader.
  • Service wrapper classes allowing legacy code to be loaded.
  • Framework for adding metadata and negotiation through Service Level Agreements.
  • Dynamic Web Service invocation through WSDL document parsing.
  • Compatibility with the Java mobile (J2ME) environment.
