A Middleware-Based Approach for Multi-Scale Mobility Simulation

Xavier Boulet, Mahdi Zargayouna, Gérard Scemama, Fabien Leurent
2021 Future Internet  
The results show that such a middleware is capable of creating a new multi-scale mobility simulation from existing ones, while minimizing the incoherence between them.  ...  We consider all the necessary processing and workflow to allow for a coherent orchestration of these simulations. We also propose a prototype implementation of the middleware.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Analyzing and Completing Middleware Designs for Enterprise Integration Using Coloured Petri Nets [chapter]

Dirk Fahland, Christian Gierds
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
So far, the in-depth analysis of such a design was not feasible, as these patterns are only described informally.  ...  Enterprise Integration Patterns allow us to design a middleware system conceptually before actually implementing it.  ...  Such a formal CPN model of the middleware can then be used in various use cases as we discuss next.  ...

2005 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper, we present our work on middleware modeling and the verification of its behavioral properties; the study is applied to our middleware architecture: PolyORB.  ...  Then we present the tools and techniques deployed to actually verify the behavioral properties of our model: Petri nets, temporal logic and advanced algorithms to reduce the size of the state space.  ...  This calls for a next-generation of middleware that addresses these many challenges [20] . Middleware architecture should be versatile to meet application needs.  ...

Building a MultiAgent System from a User Workflow Specification

Ezio Bartocci, Flavio Corradini, Emanuela Merelli
2006 Workshop From Objects to Agents  
The generated agent-based application implements the original workflow specification. Run-time support is provided by a middleware suitable for the execution of the generated code.  ...  In order to bridge the gap between workflow specifications and MASs, we exploit other intermediate Petri nets-based notations. Transformation rules are given to translate a notation to another.  ...  Our approach currently supports the building of a MAS based on message passing communication, its extension towards uncoupled communication will be next considered.  ...
