Towards a formalization of mediating connectors for on the fly interoperability

Romina Spalazzese, Paola Inverardi, Valerie Issarny
2009 2009 Joint Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture & European Conference on Software Architecture  
Still, a key challenge for today's systems architectures is to embed the necessary support for automated mediation, i.e., the connector concept needs to evolve towards the one of mediating connector.  ...  The proposed characterization paves the way for automated reasoning about protocol matching and mapping, and thus for the dynamic synthesis of mediating connectors to enable eternal networked systems,  ...  Moreover, we use the usual progress property that the parallel composition of two LTS evolves only by means of synchronization.  ...
