Feature interaction, seeming interaction, servicespecification description model


A service, which behaves normally, behaves differently when initiated with another service. This undesirable behavior is called a feature interaction. In the international benchmark for detecting interactions in telecommunication services, there are many interactions that don't actually occur. The reason why they occur is a lack of description of timing for triggering each service. Such interactions, which don't actually occur, are called "seeming interactions". If many seeming interactions are included in the results of detecting interactions, a lot of extra time is required for resolving interactions. This paper proposes a service specification description model for avoiding miss-detection of feature interactions and an automatic specification conversion method based on the model.
