YANCEES, a Versatile Event-Notification Service

Student: Roberto S. Silva Filho, UCI/ISR

Advisor: David F. Redmiles, UCI/ISR

Abstract: Publish/subscribe infrastructures, specifically event notification services, are used as the basic communication and integration framework in many application domains. The majority of these services, however, provide poor or no extension mechanisms as well as insufficient features configuration, extension and programming capabilities. As a consequence, different event notification servers have been developed to support the requirements from different application domains, resulting in implementations that are almost always incompatible with one another, and hard to evolve. They lack mechanisms that allow their use in multiple hardware and software platform configurations, and the flexibility to support services demanded by different application domains, which have requirements in constant evolution. The YANCEES (Yet ANother Configurable Extensible Event Service) framework was designed to address these versatility issues, relying on a pluggable architecture.

Bio: Roberto S. Silva Filho is a Ph.D. student in Software at the Deptartment of Informatics from the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine, where he received his M.S. in Information and Computer Science in the fall quarter of 2002. He also received a M.S. in Computer Science in August 2000 at  Institute of Computing at UNICAMP - University of Campinas, Brazil, where he also majored in Computer Engineering in 1997. His main interest areas are distributed systems, especially event-based middleware, software architecture, and their use in collaborative environments.
