Functions of Middleware
Applications use intermediate software that remains on top of the operating system and communication protocols to perform following functions:
- It hides the discrete nature of the application. It represents a collection of interconnected parts that are operational and running in discrete locations, out of view.
- It hides the heterogeneity of the enterprise. It includes the hardware components used, computer operating systems and communication protocols.
- It reduces complexities of the application bringing all the features to a single interface which makes it a user-friendly prospect.
- It helps to supply a set of common procedure to perform various common purpose functions to avoid duplicating efforts and to facilitate collaboration between applications.
Middleware Architecture Design
As the function of middleware is to mediate the interaction between the application parts, or between applications.The architectural design which induces performance penalties. Adaptable middleware introduces additional indirections, which makes the situation even worse. In addition, communication is a function of applications provided by middleware itself in which communication entities may take on different roles such as client- server or peer- to –peer.
Works as a Consolidator or Integrator :
It has been developed for decades to enable communicate between one application with another that either runs on a different platform or comes from different vendor or both.
Hence, paves way for a systemic flow:
