New Findings Reported from University Carlos III of Madrid Describe Advances in World Wide Web (Ztreamy: A middleware for publishing semantic streams on the Web)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Internet Weekly News -- Fresh data on World Wide Web are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Leganes, Spain, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "In order to make the semantic sensor Web a reality, middleware for efficiently publishing semantically-annotated data streams on the Web is needed. Such middleware should be designed to allow third parties to reuse and mash-up data coming from streams."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University Carlos III of Madrid, "These third parties should even be able to publish their own value-added streams derived from other streams and static data. In this work we present Ztreamy, a scalable middleware platform for the distribution of semantic data streams through HTTP. The platform provides an API for both publishing and consuming streams, as well as built-in filtering services based on data semantics. A key contribution of our proposal with respect to other related systems in the state of the art is its scalability."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Our experiments with Ztreamy show that a single server is able, in some configurations, to publish a real-time stream to up to 40 000 simultaneous clients with delivery delays of just a few seconds, largely outperforming other systems in the state of the art."
