Abstract

SCADDS data diffusion (at USC/ISI) and DRP (at MIT/LL) are both based on the core concept of subject-based routing. Although there are some fundamental differences between these approaches, we believe that both can be accommodated with the same Network Routing API. An earlier version of this API was used by both network routing approaches. This document describes an updated version of the API, used by the SCADDS implementation. In addition to the Publish/Subscribe API, we introduce the Filter API in order to better support in-network processing (e.g. caching/aggregation) and mobile code.
