The More Things Change . . .
January/February 2004 (vol. 8 no. 1)
pp. 87-89
Steve Vinoski, IONA Technologies

If applications were static, maintenance efforts primarily could focus on tracking down and fixing intermittent bugs that appeared only after days or weeks of continuous operation. Unfortunately, middleware applications rarely are static. Not only do changing business requirements impact the applications themselves, but for a variety of reasons, the various platforms, operating systems, and middleware underneath the applications also change. Dealing with versioning and change management in a deployed middleware application can be complicated and costly.

Index Terms:
versioning, object, message, distributed, middleware
