The grid-DBMS: towards dynamic data management in grid environments

G. Aloisio, M. Cafaro, S. Fiore, M. Mirto
2005 International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and Computing (ITCC'05) - Volume II  
Nowadays many data grid applications need to manage and process a huge amount of data distributed across multiple grid nodes and stored into heterogeneous databases.  ...  Grids encourage the publication of scientific data in a more open manner than is currently the case, and many e-Science projects have an urgent need to interconnect legacy and independently operated databases  ...  Robustness: it represents a fundamental key factor in a distributed environment. Indeed stability is a basic requirement for such components which provide access to and interaction with data sources.  ...

Overview of Service Interface Design Approaches for Interoperability of Traditional System Integration Patterns

Norziana Yahya, Mohd Azahani Md Taib
2021 Journal of Computing Research and Innovation  
One of the major issues in system integration is to deal with interoperability of legacy systems which use traditional System Integration Patterns (SIP).  ...  This paper includes a basic concept on types of traditional SIP covering File-Based, Common Database, Remote Procedure Call (RPC), Distributed Objects, and Messaging.  ...  It is one of the key elements for interaction in systems integration. It defines a way in which other elements can interact and exchange information with the service.  ...

Legacy systems: managing evolution through integration in a distributed and object-oriented computing environment

D Lemaitre, D Sauquet, I Fofol, L Tanguy, F C Jean, P Degoulet
1995 Proceedings. Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care  
Legacy systems are crucial for organizations since they support key functionalities. But they become obsolete with aging and the apparition of new techniques.  ...  The second phase proposes to use an object-oriented DBMS in place of the homegrown system. An application example for the management of hypertensive patients is described.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The development of HELIOS has benefited from the financial support of the Commission of European Union (AIM contracts A1004 and A2015) and Digital Equipment Corporation (ERP FRO18).  ...

Assisted Emulation for Legacy Executables

Kam Woods, Geoffrey Brown
2010 International Journal of Digital Curation  
The approach we advocate is to preserve necessary contextual information through scripts designed to control the legacy environment, and created during the preservation workflow.  ...  This can help eliminate both a dependence on physical reference workstations at preservation institutions, and provide users accessing materials over the web with simplified, easy-to-use environments.  ...  This research describes simple software-assisted strategies to retain contextual information required to install, execute, and interact with legacy software.  ...
