WOSH (Wide Open Smart Home) is a message-oriented middleware for controlling and automating a smart home. It comes with working services and devices. WOSH is an open multi-platform C++ framework. Its architecture is service (bundles) oriented and designed for distributed (cloud) computing. WOSH ships with library source, many services, and some applications (a server, a trayicon remote controller, and a GUI full-controller). Some features provided by its micro-kernel are a multi-user system with access policies, a centralized database manager and system monitor, and automatic network management and masquerading (on TCP). Some of the implemented services are: multimedia audio playback, monitor and control of X10 devices, remote control using instant messaging, and a remote control using SMS and call notification.
Jitterbit is an integration tool for designing, configuring, testing, and deploying integration solutions. It supports many document types and most standards-based protocols, including XML, Web Services, popular databases, text files, FTP, HTTP, and others. The integration server runs on both Windows and Linux and is configured using a Java-based user interface that is designed to make integration quick, easy, and intuitive to complete. With the UI, users can define their integration operations from start to finish: adding source and target systems, using drag-and-drop mapping to transform data, setting schedules, creating success/failure events, and tracking all of their deployed integration operations.
GRIA is Grid middleware that enables use of the Grid in a secure, interoperable and flexible manner. It makes use of business models, processes, and semantics to allow resource owners and users to discover each other and negotiate terms for access to high-value resources. It implements an overall business process to find, procure and utilise resources capable of carrying out high-value, expert-assisted computations. By focusing on business processes and the associated semantics, it enables users to provision for their computational needs more cost effectively, and develop new business models for some of their services. Services from different providers can be combined together to create applications using a simple and easy-to-use API.
