    Internet applications are evolving from the Web server to the more powerful and dynamic application server in order to support the deployment of complex applications integrated with the organization's back end systems. A key element of the application server architecture is CORBA, the Common Object Request Broker that allows applications to communicate in a transparent and interoperable manner. Fo...

    The proliferation of Web applications forces users to manage multiple user names and passwords daily. Various single sign-on solutions that depend upon PKI, Kerberos, or password-store have been proposed, but they require client side infrastructure and new administrative steps. Single sign-on in a Web based intranet environment can be achieved using http cookies. This paper analyses cookie securit... View full abstract»

    Multimedia document management is an emerging topic, since the quantity and diversity of documents to be managed at either enterprise or global level is ever increasing. Current approaches are based on mark-up scripts. While mark-up scripts possess several advantages in the simplicity of representation and interchange of structured documents among loosely coupled systems, what they originally have...

    At the approach of the next millenium, enterprises are facing a lot of challenges and have to decide in which direction their communication networks will evolve. At the moment we see a large shift towards using global intranets and extranets. Most of the time it is also necessary to connect these networks to the Internet. During the consultancy work we provided in this area we concluded that altho... View full abstract»

  • Virtual Webworlds: extending the Web for collaboration

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):90 - 95
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (140 KB)

    Synthesizes earlier work on collaboration and virtual worlds, and proposes a new attitude about distributed heterogeneous systems that extends both the shared artifacts of the World Wide Web and the shared presence of multi-user virtual environments (MUVEs), and in addition allows the use of any user-favored tools from within the same environment. The result is no loss of diversity or heterogeneit... View full abstract»

    Our world is now entering an age where the current understanding of telecommunications and graphics computing will be constantly challenged. The universal advancement of graphics technology, new business models, and the continuing upgrade of global infrastructure are transforming the solitary, platform-centric 3D computing model. With the availability of global information highways intercontinenta... View full abstract»

    Virtual Studios as they are used today for professional TV productions can be seen as being just add-ons to state-of-the-art broadcast technology and devices. As a consequence, there are a couple of restrictions concerning different aspects (e.g. positioning and orientation in the studio) that make Virtual Studio productions complicated and expensive. However, they also offer a wide range of new v... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a system that supports software development processes in virtual software corporations. A virtual software corporation consists of a set of enterprises that cooperate in projects to fulfill customer needs. Contracts are negotiated in the whole lifecycle of a software development project. The negotiations really influence the performance of a company. Therefore, it is useful to... View full abstract»

    Adapting to desired and available QoS is key to the utility and dependability of distributed, Internet-centric applications including those based upon XML. In this paper we explore the possibility of transitioning QuO, which is a technology based on distributed objects for building and deploying QoS aware adaptive distributed systems, into XML based distributed systems View full abstract»

    The object-based access control model (OBBAC), a conceptual access control model, has been proposed to deal with the high-level specification of a security policy in an object-oriented environment. This model is based on the notion of security labels which, however, are associated to operations rather than to objects as in the classic label-based access control models. It was used to specify the s... View full abstract»

    The provision of awareness on the status of cooperative work is an essential prerequisite for the successful application of groupware systems. This paper describes NESSIE, an application-independent awareness infrastructure that is based on Internet technologies. After outlining the system architecture, we illustrate how different presentation methods can be used to enhance a user's physical worki... View full abstract»

    With the increasing availability of electronic documents, it is essential that people can navigate through document spaces for information effectively through an index, in a collaborative manner. We describe a system that supports the collaborative construction of indexes of concepts rather than terms. In a concept index, a concept can be described by more than one term, phrase, arbitrary text pie... View full abstract»

    We present a method for detecting invariant task structures that are commonly shared by the two different actors (i.e., a human performer and a mobile robot), who have different perception-acting capabilities. We call such a property of having common structures as morphology of task structures, and we discuss how this property functions well for the design of a mobile robot teleoperation system vi...

    Booz-Allen is helping to design and develop a Crisis Management System to provide collaborative analytical and presentation capabilities. To facilitate the distributed use of content information, content meta data is represented as C++ objects and operated upon using CORBA interfaces. Requiring that such applications implement CORBA interfaces to access meta data objects proved to be a barrier to ... View full abstract»

    The paper focuses on the issues involved when multiple mobile agents interact in multiagent systems. The application is an intelligent agent market place, where buyer and seller agents cooperate and compete to process sales transactions for their owners. The market place manager acts as a facilitator by giving necessary information to agents and managing communication between agents, and also as a... View full abstract»
