International Initiative


Participants : Laurence Duchien, Lionel Seinturier.

AProSec (Aspects for Programming Secure distributed systems) is a franco-mexican LAFMI project between INRIA Jacquard and Dr Gomez's team from Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey (ITESM-CEM) located in Mexico City. The goal of the project is to study advanced software engineering techniques based on aspect-oriented programming for securing Web applications.


Participant : Philippe Merle.

This is a French-Asian cooperation on open adaptive middleware for ubiquitous environments. Partners are National University of Defense Technology (China), Open Source Software Resource Center (Vietnam), Peking University (China), and INRIA (Sardes, ObjectWeb and Jacquard project teams).

It is widely anticipated that future ubiquitous computing environments will be highly dynamic, subject to constant changes and of ever-increasing complexity. This in turn motivates the construction of dynamically configurable software infrastructures to provide a consistent, systematic basis for system evolution, control and management.

Targeted research is required into autonomic and complex adaptive approaches to distributed system design, along with non-intrusive middleware virtualization techniques. Such research will provide the essential foundations upon which distributed, adaptive, self-managing, self-healing systems, capable of transparently supporting the growing needs of distributed e-business, e-gov, e-learning applications, will be built.


Participants : Nicolas Dolet, Guillaume DufrĂȘne, James Manley, Philippe Merle, Nicolas Pessemier, Lionel Seinturier, Romain Rouvoy, Renaud Pawlak.

ObjectWeb is an international consortium to promote high quality open source middleware. The vision of ObjectWeb is that of a set of components which can be assembled to offer high quality middleware. We are member of this consortium and Philippe Merle is member of the ObjectWeb College of Architects. Our software projects AOKell, Fraclet, Fractal Explorer, GoTM, JAC, and OpenCCM are hosted by the consortium.

We work in the international consortium Object Management Group (OMG) since 1997. OMG defines well-known standards: CORBA, UML, MOF, MDA. We can quote our contributions to the OMG standardization work with the CorbaScript language (proposed to the Scripting Language for CORBA RFP, and accepted as the CORBA Scripting Language chapter of CORBA 3.x) and with the CORBA Component Model (CCM) chapter for which we lead the response group and the revision task force. We also participated in the definition of a UML profile for CORBA Components.
