Software Architecture of a Multimedia Data Management System

2014-04-16
Multimedia Data Management Systems (MMDMS) enable accessing, storing, organizing and retrieving multimedia content effectively and efficiently. The primary objective of the paper is to describe the software architecture of Middle East Technical University Multimedia Data Management System (METU-MMDMS) to facilitate future research on MMDMSs. There is a lack of published descriptive architectures for similar systems. Therefore, describing a particular MMDMS architecture, investigating the design decisions, rationale and the variability points that are parts of the MMDMS architectural design, showing that the prepared MMDMS architecture documentation has enough substance to account for the required scenarios are discussed in this paper.

Multimedia Data Management Systems (MMDMS) enable storing, organizing, accessing and retrieving multimedia content effectively and efficiently. "Describing the software architecture of METU Multimedia Data Management System (METU- MMDMS), which can be a representative for contemporary MMDMS architectures, to facilitate future research on MMDMSs" is the primary objective of this study. The METU-MMDMS is placed to the focal point of the study by taking into account its unique infrastructure, non-systematic wa...
Data integration over horizontally partitioned databases in service-oriented data grids
Sunercan, Hatice Kevser Sönmez; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Alpdemir, Mahmut Nedim; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Information integration over distributed and heterogeneous resources has been challenging in many terms: coping with various kinds of heterogeneity including data model, platform, access interfaces; coping with various forms of data distribution and maintenance policies, scalability, performance, security and trust, reliability and resilience, legal issues etc. It is obvious that each of these dimensions deserves a separate thread of research efforts. One particular challenge among the ones listed above tha...
Multiobjective relational data warehouse design for the cloud
Dökeroğlu, Tansel; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Conventional distributed DataWarehouse (DW) design techniques seek to assign data tables/fragments to a given static database hardware setting optimally. However; it is now possible to use elastic virtual resources provided by the Cloud environment, thus achieve reductions in both the execution time and the monetary cost of a DW system within predefined budget and response time constraints. Finding an optimal assignment plan for database tables to machines for this design problem is NP-Hard. Therefore, robu...
Semantically enriched web service composition in mobile environments
Ertürkmen, K. Alpay; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Information Systems (2003)
Web Services are self-contained, self-describing, modular applications that can be published, located, and invoked through XML artefacts across the Web. Web services technologies can be applied to many kinds of applications, where they offer considerable advantages compared to the old world of product-specific APIs, platform-specific coding, and other أbrittleؤ technology restrictions. Currently there are millions of web services available on the web due to the increase in e-commerce business volume. Web se...
Multimodal query-level fusion for efficient multimedia information retrieval
Sattari, Saeid; Yazıcı, Adnan (2018-10-01)
Managing a large volume of multimedia data containing various modalities such as visual, audio, and text reveals the necessity for efficient methods for modeling, processing, storing, and retrieving complex data. In this paper, we propose a fusion-based approach at the query level to improve query retrieval performance of multimedia data. We discuss various flexible query types including the combination of content as well as concept-based queries that provide users with the ability to efficiently perform mu...
