Welcome to http://leela.sourceforge.net/

Leela is a Web Service infrastructure for loosely-coupled business services. Each peer is controlled in one or more federations. Within this environment peers can collaborate in a simple-to-use, loosely coupled, and ad hoc style of communication.

Two papers, explaining Leela in more detail, are available:

  • U. Zdun. Loosely coupled web services in remote object federations. In Proceedings of 4th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2004), Munich, Germany, July 2004. [ .ps | .pdf ]
  • U. Zdun. Semantic lookup in service-oriented architectures. In Proceedings of Fourth International Workshop on Web-Oriented Software Technologies, Munich, Germany, July 2004. [ .ps | .pdf ]

An overview of Leela and its concepts (especially its pattern-based design) is presented in the Remoting Patterns book:
