Senior Project - Latte


Remote Support Jiro Service

Senior Project: 2000-2001
Patrick Christmas, David Hahn, Craig Morrison and Gregory Rybczynski
Network Storage Group
Broomfield, CO

Sun Microsystems is a Silicon Valley-based company specializing in server hardware, operating systems, networking technologies, Java, and software development for e-commerce and embedded systems. In the last two years Sun has developed Jiro and Jini technologies, which provide the specifications for building a dynamic network community of services. Jiro delivers technology for the management of storage, servers, applications and devices on networks enabling true integration and platform-independence. Jini allows a network of services to be easily assembled, disassembled and maintained.

The goal of the project was to provide a system that catches events generated in a Jini Lookup Service and sends email notifications to users who have registered to be informed about these events. These events might represent arbitrary changes in state of any service, for example hard disk failures or dishwashers completing their wash cycles. As long as the services creating the events use this remote support service, the system will generate notifications based on them for appropriate users and also record their occurrences for reporting purposes.

In addition to the detection and notification of events, the system also provides a graphical user interface for users to manage their event interests, as well as an API for service developers to use to interface their services to the remote support service.
