Service discovery is a platform for network entities, whether hardware or
software, to spontaneously self-configure and self-heal in a volatile environment.
An in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of service discovery is
essential for system architects to effectively execute pervasive and autonomous
context-aware applications. We offer this understanding by clarifying some
fundamental concepts and issues in service discovery; the evolution of service
discovery in the context of distributed systems, the basic architectures
and their variance and the different functionalities that contribute towards
satisfying the self-configuring and self-healing properties of service discovery.
We then proceed to show how service discovery fits into a system, by characterizing
operational aspects. Subsequently, we describe how existing state of
the art performs service discovery, in relation to the operational aspects and
functionalities, and identify areas for future work.
