Stream Processing Planning

In this paper we investigate planning approaches to the practical problem of composing stream processing applications from a set of processing components. The problems of assembling components into an application that achieves a specified goal has become an important research topic. Recently AI planning approaches have been successfully applied in similar applications such as web services, business processes, component-based software composition, automated installation. An important property of stream processing, which not handled by existing models, is the functional dependence between the attributes of incoming and outgoing streams. We propose new planning models taking this property into account, analyze decidability and complexity of the problem, and propose planning methods.
