BRIDGING BETWEEN MIDDLEWARE SYSTEMS: OPTIMISATIONS USING DOWNLOADABLE CODE

Jan Newmarch

Abstract

There are multiple middleware systems and no single system is likely to become predominant. There is therefore an interoperability requirement between clients and services belonging to different middleware systems. Typically this is done by a bridge between invocation and discovery protocols. In this paper we introduce three design patterns based on a bridging service cache manager and dynamic proxies. This is illustrated by examples including a new custom lookup service which allows Jini clients to discover and invoke UPnP services. There is a detailed discussion of the pros and cons of each pattern.
