Distributed Object-Oriented Software Architectures

Description

Investigation of middleware and architectures for distributed object-oriented software systems. This includes communication service like remote method call and message passing, abstraction from transport layer, and concepts and tools for monitoring of distributed object systems.

Team
  • Rainer Weinreich (JKU)
  • Werner Kurschl (JKU, now FH O.Ö), monitoring
  • Josef Altmann (JKU, now FH O.Ö), cooperative software development
Results
  • An IPC framework for object-based communication
  • A framework for application configuration and management
  • A framework and tools for monitoring of distributed object systems
  • Proof of concepts, by applying the developed concepts and tools for process control applications and for cooperative software development.
