Middleware? Muddleware!

by     Andrew herbert 

The scope is an historical review of the evolution of "distributed objects" from early "single shot" protocols to today's complex reflective and introspective middleware systems. I will make some predictions for how distributed objects will evolve with the growth of wide area distributed applications built using the "web services" concept and how this relates to ideas such as "Grid Computing" and "Computing on Demand".
