From March, 25th to 28th, 2008 Dr. Frank Golatowski is organizing the 3rd International IEEE Workshop on Service Oriented Architectures in Converging Networked Environments (SOCNE’08). This IEEE workshop encourages communication and exchanging of ideas between industrial and academic researchers and developers in the field of service-oriented architectures, their design and engineering process as well as their deployment for application prototypes. Important knowledge about future emerging directions for middleware, network infrastructures and self-organizing software/service architectures will be adressed.

SOCNE is held in conjunction with the IEEE 22nd International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA-08), Ginowan, Okinawa, Japan.

DPWS Explorer 2 Prototype

February 26th, 2008

MATERNA is currently working on a all-new version of the DPWS Explorer. It is completely build from scratch and includes many new useful features like:

  • An improved FilterManager with generic FilterItem support (two classes for each item needs to be implemented by the user) and powerful logical expression evaluation.
  • A new SearchManager allows the discovery of specific DPWS entities. (Searchbehaviour, SearchType, DeviceType, ServiceType, Scope, UUID can be used in combination as SearchParameter.)
  • Improved Quick Info Panels with extensive node attribute information for Device and Service Nodes.
  • A new ParameterPanel visualizing all parameters of an action as a ParameterTree.
  • An improved and highly user-configurable Device Tree View.
  • Improved GUI-Responsibility by using Eclipse’s SWT as GUI-Toolkit.
  • DPWS Multi-Device support.
  • DPWS Security support.
  • Eclipse Plugin support (projected).
  • More features to come soon…

We do not plan to make the Prototype available for downloading at the moment. But stay tuned for more information posted here!

WS4D.org updates website

February 4th, 2008

Hi friends,

we have updated our website (as you can see). The pages are now much more maintainable, more flexible and looks quite well from my point of view. We target to post new information now in higher frequency. Stay tuned!
