Widening Traditional Management Platforms for Managing Corba Applications


During the past years, enterprises became more and more dependent on the business processes that are often implemented using CORBA middleware. Todays management platforms ignore the dependency between applications and their middleware, and thus give up valuable information sources that are required for proactive management.

In this paper an Integration System is presented by which traditional management platforms are widened for managing CORBA applications. Thus, the investments for an existing management platform are protected. The Integration System consist of a flexible and highly available Integration Agent and the Generic Management Interface for querying management-relevant information from CORBA applications.
