Abstract

An innovative communication platform is presented to enable collaborative tourism applications. The user information is constructed not only from a local application or from a remote server, but also with much more information coming from other network participants. The solution is based on an overlay network that is constructed by means of an object-oriented middleware for distributed applications, enabling the collaboration of several end users and servers. A software prototype was developed to implement a proof of concept in order to demonstrate feasibility.
