Applied research is, by necessity, a distributed, collaborative process. To be useful, research methodologies must not only be applicable in such an environment, but must also be adaptive to the needs of human resources and specific research area requirements. This paper introduces eXtreme Researching (XR), an adaptation of eXtreme Programming (XP) by(More)
Today's global telecommunication infrastructure is growing in complexity, making it more difficult to manage and operate effectively. In this paper we examine the problems of simplifying configuration tasks and thus reducing operating expenditure (OPEX) for wireless telecom operators. Our approach is to use ontologies to capture networking information as(More)
The Classloader has long been one of the key extensibility points of the Java Virtual Machine architecture. It lies at the heart of many of the distributed mechanisms that have made the Java platform so successful. In this paper we give a brief overview of various distributed system technologies and analyze their applicability within a Peer-to-Peer domain.(More)
This paper details an application of model-driven development undertaken within the Celtic initiative project Madeira. The objective of Madeira is to apply model-driven approaches to investigate large-scale distribution techniques in network management. So far, the project has concentrated on building a prototype system using the peer-to-peer (P2P)(More)
Finding knowledge from vast quantities of data is a difficult task, made simpler by visually representing this information. The Internet can be considered a vast (global) database, but whose unstructured format frequently leads to a feeling of being " lost in hyperspace ". Visualising this structure can make browsing a more productive endeavour. In this(More)
