Connection Manager

Version 2.0-- August 12, 2002

The Connection Manager (CM)  is a messaging middleware layer developed at Georgia Tech.  CM is designed to help manage the complexity of systems with multiple communication links between heterogenous machines.  It provides an infrastructure to assist in building networks of entities communicating application-specific data. CM is a follow-on to the DataExchange communication library and was designed to address some of the difficulties of using DataExchange in multi-network environments and in situations where message formats evolve over time.  As such, it contains support for establishing communication between agents, matching incoming messages with registered handlers, and assisting in the distribution of message format information to entities with which it is communicating.


The features and uses of CM are described in "The Connection Manager Library", available as pdf.

Doxygen-based documentation of the API is also available.
