  • Mobile middleware service architecture for EMS application.

    The proposed mobile middleware service architecture facilitates automating tasks by running small mobile agents with user convenient interfaces and connections in a mobile network. The architecture is scalable so that interfaces and agents can be just plugged in and out of the middleware according to the requirement of the application. Our goal is to develop a wireless communication software tool for sending patient data by the ambulance crew into the emergency medical services (EMS) or the hospital servers using the above middleware. The software tool also retrieves vital patient information such as the patient history and early treatments from the EMS/hospital servers to assist in the patient care process

The Middleware is developed to bridge the communication between mobile device as a gateway and the sensor nodes, and therefore it shields the underlying sensor and OS/protocol stack away from the WBAN application layer. The middleware is coded in the form of lightweight dynamic link library, which allows the application developer to simply incorporate the middleware resource dynamic link library into their application and call the required functions (i.e. data acquisition, resource management and configurations). A showcase of the middleware deployment is exhibited at the end of the paper.

  • Towards service composition middleware embedded in web browser

    Due to the rich user experience and Internet-wide scalability, more and more Web-delivered services are assembled in web browsers and the resulted service composition itself is also running in the browsers. Today's popular service composition environments embedded in web browsers mainly focus on the experiences of end-users or non-professional users. The solutions for other composition issues, e.g. service access and interaction enablement, are private and tightly coupled with the user interfaces. In this paper, we propose a new type of middleware, which is embedded in web browsers and encapsulates reusable solutions for common problems to the composition of Web- delivered services, including a container for component instances, a set of communication mechanisms for interactions within the browser, between the browser and server, between the browser and local resources. Based on iCM, different service composition environments preferred by different users can be constructed easily with high quality. In the evaluation, we implement a prototype of the browser middleware, called Internetware Client Middleware (iCM), construct a new service composition environment, called iMashup, with iCM and compare iMashup with some popular environments. The evaluation results demonstrates that iMashup has richer composition capabilities, supports more types of web browsers, consumes smaller memory and gains practical scalability. These observations show the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed middleware.

  • The State of the Art in Middleware

    With the increasing popularity of distributed systems, middleware has become a major building block for the development of distributed applications. In this paper, we firstly analyze in detail four traditional middleware systems called RPC middleware, message-oriented middleware, transaction-oriented middleware, and distributed object middleware. Subsequently, we present a detailed review of SOA, SOM and web services. Finally, we point out the future directions of research and conclude this paper.

  • Middleware Technology Research and Interface Design in Ubiquitous Network

    Middleware is a kind of common services between the platform, including hardware and operating system, and applications. These services share the standard program interface and protocols, and realize different hardware nodes based on it. Also, middleware is a kind of reusable software, which provides unified data and environment for services in the application layer of ubiquitous network, thus helping users to develop and integrate applications flexibly and efficiently. This paper firstly introduces the research background on middleware technology and ubiquitous network architecture. The ubiquitous network can be divided into network integration layer, service convergence layer and application convergence layer, which are corresponding to the device side, platform side and application side in the actual ubiquitous network system. The system includes device interfaces, application interfaces and middleware management interfaces, which are divided based on their functions. Middleware management interface is mainly for devices and middleware management functions. This paper introduces the device registration function design, platforms discovery function design and data searching function design of the middleware management interface. The interfaces design in this paper is introduced for the general scene, and it needs to be improved for some specific applications.

  • LiteMWBAN: A lightweight middleware for wireless body area network

    Healthcare is considered as one of the most important agenda to address by many countries worldwide. Thanks to the recent development in wireless sensor technology, a continuous medical monitoring of the patients under their natural physiological states has been made possible and this will certainly help to detect transient life threatening from daily activities. With the growing variety of healthcare sensor devices, it is of interest to deploy a middleware system that shields the underlying technology differences from the application layer. The aim of this paper is to propose LiteMWBAN, a lightweight middleware for wireless medical body area network. The main features of the proposed middleware include support on: (i) multiple sensors and applications, (ii) plug and play, (iii) resource management and alert, and (iv) mobile applications. The prototype of the middleware has been built and its effective uses when deployed with a mobile healthcare application are shown in this paper.

  • Design of wireless sensor networks middleware using the publish/subscribe paradigm

    WSNs middleware is software positioned between applications and the operating system in sensor nodes. This middleware should have a communication function between the sensor nodes, to support good interactive functions between the user's applications. It must balance the resource use between the client and server system. WSNs comprise server-side middleware and in-network middleware. Server-side middleware supports application services efficiently in the server system. In-network middleware, located between sensor nodes, is in charge of managing the inner sensing information. We choose an event-driven network, the publish and subscribe network model, to support WSN. Using this model, sensor networks could reduce unnecessary energy consumption and respond to a variety of user requests.

  • Middleware Software for Embedded Systems

    Embedded systems with communicating and computing ability and multimedia functions work to every corner of daily life. However, the diverse architectures of embedded systems cause problems corresponding to reuse, portability and dependability. Middleware is a set of software that executes between operating system and application to solve stated problems. The advantages include unified interface, scalable and transparent abilities. This project investigates middleware technology on embedded systems and then proposes embedded middleware architecture to overcome the problems relating to reuse, portability, dependability and transparency. The proposed middleware consists of API module, service manager module and content manager module. The API module is designed to communicate with upper layer and lower layer by unified interface. Also, it provides a set of methods for solving problems of portability and dependability. The service manager module conducts a set of services for application. Moreover, it is able to automatically generate and deploy content information. The content manager module organizes and supplies information to the service manager module. Additionally, it solves transparent problem by ASCII and URL representation. In order to verify the feasibility for the proposed approach, we design the application of touch screen for embedded middleware system. Not only middleware but also embedded operating system, shell script, embedded graphical user interface and application are validated. Finally, we assess the functionality and integrated test of embedded middleware system by S3C2410 and XScale PXA270 system.
