    Developing any nontrivial middleware-based distributed system is hard, regardless of the middleware technology. Although technology's continuous march should make systems easier to develop, somehow the details always remain challenging. New technologies only seem to make simple things simpler; they don't help with the more complex things. Horizontal concerns, such as security, transactions, fault ... View full abstract»

    In the first of a two-part series, we review industry best practices for designing, validating, deploying, and operating IP-based services at the network edge with tight service-level agreements (SLAs). We describe the important SLA metrics for IP service performance and discuss why Diffserv is the preferred technology to achieve these SLAs. View full abstract»

    The pervasive computing vision is a paradigm shift "back to the future." It could create a world 25 years hence where, once again, everything is alive (EiA) and can sense, act, think, feel, communicate, and maybe even move and reproduce. This might include equipment, vehicles, robots, clothing, pets, and objects such as trees and walls. The assumption behind this paradigm shift is that sensors, ac... View full abstract»

    Web services are emerging as a promising technology for effectively automating interorganizational interactions. However, despite the growing interest, several issues remain to be addressed to provide Web services with benefits similar to what traditional middleware brings to intraorganizational application integration. We identify a framework that builds on current standards to help developers de... View full abstract»

    Web services let programs submit requests to other programs over the Internet via open protocols and standards. Many traditional Web sites, including popular search engines like Google and large online bookstores are boosting their traffic through Web service APIs. A single Internet application can invoke many different Web services - for example, the metasearch engine WebSifter uses several onlin... View full abstract»

    Ice is a new object-oriented middleware platform that allows developers to build distributed client-server applications with minimal effort. While similar in concept to Corba, Ice breaks new ground by providing an object model that is both simpler and more powerful, by getting rid of inefficiencies that plagued middleware in the past, and by providing new features such as user datagram protocol (U...

  • Understanding link quality in 802.11 mobile ad hoc networks

    Mobile ad hoc wireless networks will extend the Internet into new territory, making Web services available "anytime, anywhere." This creates new markets in such areas as pervasive computing and traffic management. We show that the communication quality of current 802.11 ad hoc networks is low, and that users can experience strong fluctuations in link quality as a result. They identify key factors ...

    The Java programming language has been a phenomenal success. It's a significant improvement over C and C++, and its libraries for network and GUI programming have introduced large numbers of programmers to previously esoteric disciplines. The recent European Conference for Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP) included the workshop on object-oriented language engineering for the post-Java era at whi... View full abstract»

    Industry and researchers have two different visions for the future of Web services. Industry wants to capitalize on Web service technology to automate business processes via centralized workflow enactment. Researchers are interested in the dynamic composition of Web services. We show how these two visions are points in a continuum and discuss a possible path for bridging the gap between them. View full abstract»

    State-of-the-art Web applications include both navigational elements and business processes, but most Web application design methods treat business processes as just another kind of navigation. The authors' extensions to the object-oriented hypermedia design method (OOHDM) aim to remedy this situation. Rather than using navigation to emulate business processes, their new mechanisms allow developer... View full abstract»

    Online repositories are increasingly called on to provide access to services that describe or provide useful behaviors. Existing techniques for finding services offer low retrieval precision, returning many irrelevant matches. We introduce a novel service retrieval approach that captures service semantics using process models, and applies a pattern-matching algorithm to find the services with the ... View full abstract»

    We describe a proposed methodology for business process choreography. We focus on two types of business processes (contract and executable) and provide an interface protocol to represent interoperability patterns between them. The approach is designed to let existing processes, usually managed by an enterprise's own internal workflow management system, collaborate. View full abstract»
