Clever hacks are a prerequisite to successful software development. [citation needed :-)] The projects below have been built, used, evaluated and extended during the thesis work period.
SPACE, the Service Platform Architecture for Contracting and Execution, is the platform name for our overall highly-integrated set of SOA components and services needed to run adaptive services with flexible and enforceable quality guarantees.

Metadata Correlation Service
The MDCS attaches to the SPACE platform services to retrieve, aggregate and correlate specifications about non-functional properties in service-bound and runtime-created service artefacts, such as descriptions, agreement templates and monitoring reports.

Experimental Facility
The Experimental Facility contains scripts and configuration directives to allow for large-scale experiments on service platform functions. It includes a service description crawler, a user activity simulator and mass-hosting scripts.
