English abstract:
The modularity of Service-oriented Architectures (SOA) allows
to establish complex distributed systems comprising e.g., services,
clients, brokers, and workflow engines. A growing complexity, however,
automatically increases the number of potential fault sources which have
effects on the whole SOA. Fault handling mechanisms must be applied
in order to achieve a certain level of robustness. In this paper we do not
deal with fault-tolerance itself but regard the problem from a different
perspective: how can fault-tolerance be evaluated? We argue that this
can be best done by testing the system at runtime and observing its
reaction on occuring faults. Though, engineers are facing the problem of
how to perform such tests in a realistic manner in order to get meaningful
results. As our contribution to this issue we present an approach
for generating fault injection testbeds for SOA. Our framework allows
to model testbeds and program their behavior, to generate running instances
out of it, and to inject diverse types of faults. The strength of
our approach lies in the customizability of the testbeds and the ability
to program the fault-injecting mechanisms in a convenient manner.
