A New Web Services Protocol?




A proposed method for sharing information between systems linked on the Internet promises to speed collaborative applications by up to 10 times the current rates.

The protocol, developed by Jonghun Park, a professor at Pennsylvania State University’s School of Information Sciences and Technology, is based on an algorithm that lets it use parallel instead of serial methods to process requests. Such a method boosts the efficiency of how resources are shared over the Internet. The new protocol is called Order-based Deadlock Prevention Protocol with Parallel Requests.
