Research Interests and Activities:
  • The development of a reflective resource management framework within the context of the OpenORB architecture. A prototype of such framework has been implemented in Python.
  • Providing QoS management specification support for multimedia middleware. This research involves the development of a resource-aware ADL, called Xelha, for the high-level specification of QoS management and an aspect-oriented suite of languages referred to as resource configuration description language (RCDL) for the low-level specification of QoS properties. Tool support for the interpretation of both languages is also provided.
  • The design of a resource management framework aiming to provide QoS guaranties to proactive and large-scale mobile distributed applications. This research is being carried out within the context of the CORTEX project.
