    • Applying constraint solving to the management of distributed applications 

      McCarthy, Andrew; Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham (University of St Andrews, 2008) - Report
      We present our approach for deploying and managing distributed component-based applications. A Desired State Description (DSD), written in a high-level declarative language, specifies requirements for a distributed ...
    • First Smart Spaces 

      Kirby, Graham; Dearle, Alan; McCarthy, Andrew; Morrison, Ron; Mullen, Kevin; Yang, Yanyan; Connor, Richard; Welen, Paula; Wilson, Andy (University of St Andrews, 2002-09-01) - Report
      This document describes the Gloss software currently implemented. The description of the Gloss demonstrator for multi-surface interaction can be found in D17. The ongoing integration activity for the work described in ...
    • A flexible and secure deployment framework for distributed applications 

      Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew; Diaz y Carballo, Juan-Carlos (Springer, 2004-05-20) - Conference item
      This paper describes an implemented system which is designed to support the deployment of applications offering distributed services, comprising a number of distributed components. This is achieved by creating high level ...
    • A framework for constraint-based deployment and autonomic management of distributed applications 

      Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2004) - Report
      We propose a framework for deployment and subsequent autonomic management of component-based distributed applications. An initial deployment goal is specified using a declarative constraint language, expressing constraints ...
    • A framework for constraint-based deployment and autonomic management of distributed applications (extended abstract) 

      Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (2004-05) - Conference poster
      We propose a framework for the deployment and subsequent autonomic management of component-based distributed applications. An initial deployment goal is specified using a declarative constraint language, expressing constraints ...
    • An information flow architecture for Global Smart Spaces 

      Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew; Diaz y Carballo, Juan-Carlos (University of St Andrews, 2003-11-13) - Report
      In this paper we describe an architecture which: Permits the deployment and execution of components in appropriate geographical locations. Provides security mechanisms that prevent misuse of the architecture. Supports a ...
    • A middleware framework for constraint-based deployment and autonomic management of distributed applications 

      Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2004) - Report
      We propose a middleware framework for deployment and subsequent autonomic management of component-based distributed applications. An initial deployment goal is specified using a declarative constraint language, expressing ...
    • A peer-to-peer middleware framework for resilient persistent programming 

      Dearle, Alan; Kirby, Graham; Norcross, Stuart; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2006) - Report
      The persistent programming systems of the 1980s offered a programming model that integrated computation and long-term storage. In these systems, reliable applications could be engineered without requiring the programmer ...
    • RAFDA : A policy-aware middleware supporting the flexible separation of application logic from distribution 

      Walker, Scott; Dearle, Alan; Norcross, Stuart; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2006) - Report
      Middleware technologies often limit the way in which object classes may be used in distributed applications due to the fixed distribution policies that they impose. These policies permeate applications developed using ...
    • RAFDA : Middleware supporting the separation of application logic from distribution policy 

      Dearle, Alan; Walker, Scott; Norcross, Stuart; Kirby, Graham; McCarthy, Andrew (University of St Andrews, 2005) - Report
      Middleware technologies often limit the way in which object classes may be used in distributed applications due to the fixed distribution policies imposed by the Middleware system. These policies permeate the applications ...
    • Second set of spaces 

      Zirintsis, Evangelos; Kirby, Graham; Dearle, Alan; Allen, Ben; MacInnis, Rob; McCarthy, Andrew; Morrison, Ron; Nixon, Paddy; Jamieson, Andrew; Nicholson, Chris; Harris, Steven (University of St Andrews, 2003) - Report
      This document describes the Gloss infrastructure supporting implementation of location-aware services. The document is in two parts. The first part describes software architecture for the smart space. As described in D8, ...
