The purpose of this thesis was to devise a mechanism to allow Web servers (or services) to find out and use other Web services running locally to Web clients (personal services). To do so, we had to create a solution for having a local name server to find out personal services (i.e., resolve names to service handles) and a solution for allowing Web servers to invoke personal services given those handles. The communication between the Web servers and the local name server or the personal services is mediated by the Web client (a browser) using a new HTTP redirection mechanism.
