Applications in the emerging fields of eCommerce and
Ubiquitous Computing are composed of heterogenous systems that
have been designed separately.
Hence, these systems loosely coupled and require a coordination
mechanism that is able to gap spatial and temporal remoteness.
The use of tuple spaces for data-driven coordination of these
systems has been proposed in the past. In addition, applications
of eCommerce and Ubiquitous Computing are not bound to a
predefined size, so that the underlying coordination
mechanism has to be highly scalable. However, it seems to be
difficult to conceive a scalable tuple space.
This report is an English version of the author's diploma
thesis. It comprises the chapter two, three, four, and five. By
this means, the design and the implementation of the proposed
tuple space is not part of this report.
