    MultiTel is a compositional framework for developing collaborative multimedia applications, and also designates a Web-based distributed platform that supports intercomponent communication. This article shows how compositional and coordination paradigms can be successfully applied to design cooperative Java applications with multimedia data exchange. The focus is on multimedia and network architect... View full abstract»

    The Upper Atmospheric Research Collaboratory was actively used over a period of six years to study space weather phenomena such as magnetic storms and solar winds. The UARC software was designed as a modular system of independent services that work over a wide area network and support a complex array of data suppliers, transformation modules that provided quality-of-service support, and client too...

    This survey describes the roots of IP Multicast, the evolution of the Internet Multicast Backbone, or Mbone, and the technologies that have risen around the Mbone to support large-scale Internet-based multimedia conferencing. The author explains the technical rationale for design decisions that underlay the Mbone tools, describes the evolution of this work from early prototypes into Internet stand... View full abstract»

    Considerable research has gone into investigating networking and operating system mechanisms to support the transfer and playout of stored continuous media, but there is very little information available about how users actually interact with such systems. Developing a user workload characterization can help in the design and evaluation of efficient CM resource allocation and access mechanisms. Th... View full abstract»

    The concept of quality of service-that is, the network capability to provide a nondefault service to a subset of the aggregate traffic-has now entered the IP lexicon. The author surveys the history of this development from the Internet's original passenger-class-only, best-effort protocol suite. He concludes with a review of the current Internet Engineering Task Force's efforts in the Differentiat... View full abstract»

    From the infinite world of protocol designs-yet-to-be, the paper focuses on an IETF Birds-of-a-Feather proposal for an Application Core (ApplCore) protocol. ApplCore would identify common problems encountered in application-level protocol development and then design one simple core protocol to solve these problems based on the successes and failures of already deployed IETF protocols-in effect, an...

    Some agents roaming the Web these days are benevolent-for example, they may clean up stalled or failed database transactions, or share query results that may have cost substantial resources to acquire and might consume more to share. The Agent Behavior Testbed is a tool for studying the economics of agent altruism. As more agents hit the Internet, benevolence and cooperation will help with overall... View full abstract»
