Coulson, G and Baichoo, S and Moonian, O (2002) A retrospective on the design of the GOPI middleware platform. Multimedia Systems, 8 (5). pp. 340-352. ISSN 1432-1882Full text not available from this repository.
This paper offers a high-level retrospective overview of the GOPI middleware platform which is the outcome of a three-year project aimed at the development of generic, configurable and extensible middleware. GOPI has a clearly defined modular structure, is widely extensible with plug-ins at all levels of the architecture, and natively supports stream interactions as well as standard operation invocation. It offers a generic framework for quality of service (QoS) specification and management, and supports a high-level, multimedia-oriented programming environment that is backwardly compatible with the OMG's CORBA. At its lower levels it supports QoS-driven resource management and features an optimised HOP stack. Despite its enhanced functionality, GOPI's HOP performance equals or exceeds that of state-of-the-art CORBA platforms.
