Middleware technologies change so rapidly that designers must adapt existing software architectures to incorporate new emerging ones. This paper proposes an architectural pattern and guidelines to abstract the communication barrier whereby allowing the developer to concentrate on the application logic. We demonstrate our approach and the feasibility of easily upgrading the middleware infrastructure in the context of a sample application and three case studies using three different middlewares on the .NET framework.
