Shared event model, Grid-based collaboration
The Internet is a global infrastructure that brings resources and people together. Diverse fields are prospering on it, such as Grid computing and collaboration. We demonstrate the Grid-based Collaboration idea by making three interface applications collaborative between computers over networks, using a common message broker as the underlying communication system. To achieve the global collaboration, we have brought together in the research a Grid-based Collaboration paradigm, a Shared Event model, different implementing structures, methodologies and technologies. We describe the applications’ event structures in messages coordinating the Grid-base collaboration. We further abstract the collaboration of the applications to be collaboration between paradigms with message as the glue or the key, and point out the implications from this.
