Middleware systems are also sometimes called transparencies like the location transparency, network transparency. It helps in decreasing the burden of developing distributed application.
Middleware systems support the development of distributed applications in networked environments. It also involves systems integration. Middleware systems make this task more efficient and less error prone.
Middleware systems also mean software technologies to help manage the heterogeneity and complexity in the development of the distributed applications and information systems. It also connotes to a layer of software above the operating system but below the application that provide a common programming abstraction. It, hence, provides for a greater level programming than the APIs or the Application Programming Interfaces.
Middleware systems comprises of services and abstractions to help the deployment, integration, design and development of distributed applications in heterogeneous networks. Some examples of middleware systems are event notification and messaging services like Java Messaging Service; remote communication mechanisms like Java RMI, CORBA, etc or naming services like LDAP. CORBA, DCOM, COM+, .Net Remoting, application servers constitute middleware systems.
Middleware systems are also sometimes called transparencies like the location transparency, network transparency. It helps in decreasing the burden of developing distributed application. There are various categories of middleware systems like remote procedure call, naming and directory services, message oriented middleware, distributed object middleware, remote invocation mechanisms, etc. Middleware systems are also sometimes informally called plumbing as it connects the data pipes with some parts of the distributed applications and then the data is passed through them.
Middleware systems are also called “glue” technology as they are usually used to link the legacy components. It is also very useful for binding network devices such as mobile base stations and routers to provide network integrators.
