Depending on exactly when one starts counting, CORBA is about 10-15 years old. During its lifetime, CORBA has moved from being a bleeding-edge technology for early adopters, to being a popular middleware, to being a niche technology that exists in relative obscurity. It is instructive to examine why CORBA—despite once being heralded as the “next-generation technology for e-commerce”—suffered this fate. CORBA’s history is one that the computing industry has seen many times, and it seems likely… 
Customer profiling using a service-orientated architecture
TLDR
This research investigates and proposes a model businesses can utilise to implement a customer profile as a service on the Internet, in that customer's needs and preferences can be accessed on demand, while data security, scalability, efficiency and reliability of the data are handled by a third party.
A modified multi-class association rule for text mining
TLDR
Experimental results indicate that the proposed Association Classifier, mMCAR, produced high accuracy with a smaller number of classification rules, contributing to the text mining domain as automatic classification of huge and widely distributed textual data could facilitate the text representation and retrieval processes.
Internet Metaobject Protocol (IMOP): Weaving the Global Program Grid
  • Stefan Hong, Yuh-Jzer Joung
  • Computer Science
    2013 IEEE 27th International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA)
  • 2013
TLDR
Internet Metaobject Protocol is developed, a remote method invocation protocol for object-based resource representations that rigorously defines the types of data passed between systems, including primitive types, composite value types, and reference types.
Standardizing Web Services: Overcoming 'Design by Committee'
TLDR
It is demonstrated, with the help of an empirical study, how the participants interact, and the roles they take on to produce Web service standards.
Big Data Remote Access Interfaces for Light Source Science
TLDR
A typical x-ray science workflow is used to illustrate the use of two recently developed techniques for data movement, archiving, and tagging, including a scalable catalog for referencing, managing, and performing remote operations on distributed data and a novel remote object interface for structured data set manipulation and visualization.
Challenges and Recommendations to Healthcare Data Exchange in an Interoperable Environment
TLDR
A glance at different approaches of designing interoperable models is provided and the healthcare models designed on such approaches are illustrated and the need of robust security control improving accessibility and availability of EHR at the required place by the authorized user is recommended.
DIRECTOR: A distributed communication transport manager for the Smart Grid
TLDR
Experimental results show that distributed systems, such as the Smart Grid data network, can benefit from the scalability and transport layer flexibility provided by the proposed middleware solution, and be able to rapidly negotiate transport level communication options at run time.
Message Modeling for the Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS)
  • Sean Whitsitt, J. Sprinkle
  • Computer Science
    2011 18th IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Engineering of Computer-Based Systems
  • 2011
TLDR
A modeling environment capable of producing a domain-specific prototype of the software necessary for inter-computer communications, compatible with standard JAUS implementations, and validated using the Open JAUS open source API and framework is presented.
Robotic Devices as Interfaces to Web Services
TLDR
A platform is presented that reduces the work of the application developer to define the application logic, based on the generalisation of devices and web services to reactive services, that can be connected much like dataflow process networks.
