Event Models : An Evaluation Framework

by Egilsson, Guðlaugur Stefán

Abstract (Summary)
Event based programming is an important metaphor used in a variety of applications. Research and practice in this field comes primarily from two distinct sources, component software and databases. In both those fields, the need for asynchronous notifications has led to the specification and implementation of event models, but with somewhat different emphasis.This dissertation defines an evaluation framework for evaluating event models. In doing so, it defines several factors that are important when reviewing different event models with respect to implementing applications or components that require event notification mechanisms.It has been suggested that the event models defined for COM and CORBA can each be used as the basis for implementing advanced event services. The framework presented in this dissertation is used to evaluate these two event models with respect to their capability to support an advanced event service originating from active database research.
