License Type
10.
Is this software based upon or derived from other software or portions of
software; does it include other software, code, or programming; or may it
otherwise be subject to the rights of others in preexisting material(s) or
inventions? Are any portions of it “shareware,” “freeware,” “open source,” or
subject to other licenses from third parties? If so, please list and explain in detail
those sources.
A comprehensive list has been included in the previous page.
11.
Describe the particular problem that the software might solve:
The software enables the construction of large scale distributed broker networks which can route events/messages
intelligently to attached subscribers. There are a variety of matching engines incorporated within NaradaBrokering,
so several sophisticated interactions between entities can be supported.
12.
Please attach a complete description of the new software (the detail should be similar to
that of the methods and results sections of a publication). This description may be by
reference to a separate document (copy of a report, reprint, galley proof, grant
application, or the like).
A good description of the software capabilities can be found in our paper
A Middleware Framework and Architecture for Peer-to-Peer Grids. (To appear) Proceedings of ACM/IFIP/USENIX
International Middleware Conference Middleware-2003.
AUTHORS: Shrideep Pallickara and Geoffrey Fox
13.
Describe previous attempts to solve the problem and the limitations or deficiencies your
software overcomes in the state of the art:
Previous attempts have tended incorporate either inefficient routing/dissemination algorithms or have not tended to
address the array of interactions that are supported in NaradaBrokering.
14.
Describe the novel features of your software and why they are significant:
We employ a hierarchical dissemination scheme. The system can also scale to support client concentrations of
arbitrary size. The type of interactions that are supported is significant compared to earlier efforts in the same area.
The first known system to manage centralized, distributed and P2P interactions while also supporting a variety of
matching engines and legacy audio/video conferencing clients.

15.
Are there other contemplated forms of the invention or alternate aspects and
uses of this software?
Yes □
No □
Yes
16.
Describe the stage of development for this software (prototype, some supporting
documentation, fully functional with full documentation):
Some pieces of the software are at an advanced stage with full functionality and robust performance. Other pieces
are in a prototyped form and are moving towards implementation of full functionality. There is good documentation
pertaining to all the source files within the system through an API documentation.
17.
What research plans do you have for further development of your software? Are
these plans in progress? Scheduled? Dependent upon commercial or federal
sponsorship? Please attach relevant grant applications.
NaradaBrokering is used as part of many Community Grid Lab collaboration and Grid projects. We have to make it
part of international open source Grid core software.
18.
Who might be the potential audience for the software? Outline your views for
developing, marketing, and using your software for commercial applications.
A better place to find an answer to this is to read Prof. Fox’s recent book on the Grid. Examples include University
Research such as eScience and Distance Education.
19.
List known competitive products. These can include software already on the
market as well as work by other researchers or competitors that is related to your
work. List differences and similarities to your software.
The system has competitors in different domains
From the JMS point of view
SonicMQ, FioranoMQ – Commercial JMS systems
From a middleware point of view Talarian, TIBOC – Middleware
In some areas the system is a couple of steps ahead.

Revenue Sharing:
All authors and creators typically would share revenues equally for
“applicable intellectual property” as defined in the Indiana University Intellectual Property
policy available at www.indiana.edu/~rugs/respol/intprop.html. IU policy also allows for
alternative revenue sharing agreements between the creators themselves. You should
discuss the percent distributions among yourselves. If you would like to pursue an
alternative arrangement, all creators must agree to any alternative revenue distribution
arrangements as evidenced by signatures on this page.
