Abstract: This paper presents the design and development of an adaptive
planning system using the technology of Web services. The
Web-based adaptive planning system consists of two modules that
can work independently. The first one is called HAP-WS and is the
Web service interface to the domain independent planner HAP
(Highly Adjustable Planner) that can be customized through the
adjustment of several parameters, either manually or
automatically. In the manual mode, the user itself adjusts planner
parameters giving explicitly the values. In the automatic mode,
the second subsystem, called LAMP-WS, computes the values of the
planning parameters of HAP. LAMP-WS is the Web service interface
to the learning system LAMP (Lazy Adaptive Multicriteria Planning)
that can automatically configure a planning system using
instance-based learning on past performance data of that system.
The two subsystems are implemented as independent Web services,
which can be used stand-alone and reside in different servers in
potentially different geographical locations.
