CORBA-Based Frameworks for Cooperative Distributed Simulation and Validation of Complex Technical Systems
This paper describes frameworks for cooperative distributed simulation and validation environments. Starting with requirements of such systems a corresponding set of CORBA-based frameworks is presented. The frameworks' focus is on integration and configuration of simulators, modelling the validation process with test procedures, user interaction and support for cooperation and communication. Configuration of the environments based on sets of predefined modular components, dynamic distribution with CORBA wires and data visualization with virtual instruments based on Java are the key concepts of this approach.
