CORBA is widely accepted as the open international standard for modelling and building comprehensive distributed systems. In most cases, CORBA architects have adopted relational databases for storage of persistent data. Among the issues that usually face architecture designers considering how to combine CORBA and standard relational database standards are(More)
ÐObject-oriented database system (OODB) supports an object-oriented data model with the functionality of persistency and transaction semantics. In order to facilitate the use of OODB, the Object Database Management Group (ODMG) defined a standard for object database management system. On the other hand, the Object Management Group (OMG) defined the Common(More)
The sheer volume of information and variety of sources from which it may be retrieved on the Web make searching the sources a difficult task. Usually, meta-search engines can be used only to search Web pages or documents; other major sources such as data bases, library corpuses and the so-called Web data bases are not involved. Faced with these(More)
An enterprise computing platform is a combination of emerging technologies and methodologies on which people can perform business activities to produce values. In recent years, several new technologies have boosted the evolution of the enterprise computing platform toward a more efficient and effective computing. However, only a few enterprises can utilise(More)
This paper develops a novel optimization scheme for multi-domain optical network protection under multiple probabilistic failures arising from large-scale disasters. The model is solved using an approximation approach and the results compared with some advanced heuristics. OCIS codes: (060.4256) Networks, optimization; (060.4257) Networks, survivability;(More)
