dc.description.abstract Middleware! It was somewhere, and now it is definitely everywhere. Over the past four decades, the term middleware has been tossed around, picked up, and investigated vigorously. Yet, if you ask 10 different people “what is middleware?” You will most likely get 10 different answers. It started as some additions on top of operating systems to facilitate complex applications development, moved to become data integration features, then became network applications facilitator, and eventually became an important component of every distributed environment, application, system and platform there is. To-date, if you examine any type of distributed system or application, you must find middleware or some middleware functionality involved. Although recently, the term itself is becoming less used, yet it still exists in mobile and sensor networks, service-oriented architectures, grid computing, cloud computing, online multi-player games, networked robotics, the Internet of things, and much more. So as is, middleware is really still everywhere and most likely will remain everywhere for a very long time. en_US
