As submarine data processing systems become more complex and are comprised of more and more heterogeneous components, a new compatibility problem has arisen. Use of middleware packages, which broker data between applications using unique protocols andstandards, has caused inter-subsystem connectivity problems, since each middleware solution, adhering to their own standards, is usually not interoperable with any other middleware. In addition to this problem, many middleware solutions are not backwardcompatible with previous versions of the same middleware. This situation, whatever the cause, has made a system, which should have a single data exchange standard, now support at least four different standards.At the base of this problem is thatmiddleware products provide a useful service to the applications that use them. Middleware packages provide seamless data exchange services, platform independence, simplified system interfaces, and a standardized execution scheme. In fact, the middlewarepackages chosen or developed by each subsystem match the needs and requirements of those systems.A desired goal would be to create an architecture for systems to use to insure their interoperability, regardless of the middleware solution each has beendeveloped under. This architecture would allow new subsystems to be integrated into the architecture with little effort.The results of this project are anticipated to have application to both commercial and military systems. Initially, this product wouldbe best applied to government agencies and DoD where there is a real need to provide a better networking solution for system interoperability. In addition, since commercial industry has many of the same networking interconnectivity issues, there is asubstantial market for the application of Jini technology in commerce, banking, and transaction-based services where multiple heterogeneous systems must exchange data in a common format.
