Abstract

Designing reconfigurable applications is not an easy task, due to the complex methodologies and the delegation of too many low level details to the designer. The solution proposed in this paper is based in the distributed object model, where a transparent reconfigurable service is built upon a Hw/Sw communications middleware.
