A QoS resource error detection-recovery model called “IPM_RQOS” was proposed for situation-aware middleware as RCSM. IPM_RQOS model was used to detect and recover the QoS resource errors among actions. An example of situation-aware applications is a multimedia education system. Education system for distributed multimedia holds the promise of greatly improving all forms of remote education and training. The model aims at guaranteeing it through application QoS. IPM_RQOS model is proposed for supporting QoS resource errors detection-recovery in the situation-aware middleware.
