IN A NUTSHELL
ASCOLA addresses the general problem of structuring and evolving software by developing concepts, languages, implementations and tools for building software architectures based on components and aspects. Its long term goal is the development of new abstractions for the programming of software architectures, their representation in terms of expressive programming languages and their correct and efficient implementation.
Research and implementation are strongly linked to validate our results in the context of significant applications in the domains of enterprise information systems, service-oriented architectures (middleware, business components), cluster and grid programming, as well as pervasive systems.
ASCOLA’s role in the project is targeting the implementation and the use of a new paradigm for large scale infrastructure management, especially regarding data storage.
