Abstract

The rapid growth of data exchange on the Internet has created many critical problems that require an answer. Traditional data exchange systems based on client/server communication models are less scalable and incur especially high maintenance cost in the data exchange domain. For these reasons, many researchers have switched their interest to asynchronous communication models. Although Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) is a middle-tier infrastructure that links operating systems and applications, such asynchronous communication APIs supported by middleware vendors are usually hard to use. For these reasons, in this study, we present a new development environment for asynchronous communication platforms which we term Ghostwriter. The keyword for our development environment is 'easy', that is, easy to use, easy to develop, and easy to deploy. Therefore, many researchers have switched their interest to asynchronous communication models. In addition, learning about and implementing the functions of the asynchronous communication's clients in Ghostwriter environment is simple. Other benefits are a lower technical learning curve, help for concentrate on system design, has easily reusable components, and easily integrated applications.
