Tizen and HTML5

The Tizen SDK is a comprehensive set of tools for developing Tizen web and native applications. Tizen is based on the Linux kernel and the GNU C Library implementing the Linux API. It targets a very wide range of devices including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart TVs, PCs, smart cameras, wearable computing (such as Smartwatch), Blu-ray Players, Printers and Smart Home Appliances. Its purpose is to offer a consistent user experience across devices, allowing developers to use HTML5 and related Web technologies to write applications that run on supported devices.

In October 2014, the Worldwide Web Consortium elevated the HTML5 specification to ‘recommendation’ status , giving it the group’s highest level of endorsement, which is to becoming a standard. The W3C also introduced Application Foundations with the announcement of the HTML5 recommendation. Open Web Platform (OWP) is a set of technologies for developing distributed applications with the greatest interoperability among different terminal devices. HTML5 plays a key role to that.

In this framework, Tizen Association works closely with the Linux Foundation which runs the Tizen open source project (Tizen.org), with a focus on platform development and delivery.

Samsung, a member of Tizen association, has launched Tizen-based Samsung TVs and has released also the relative Tizen SDK and Caph SDK, in order to support the development of web applications and promote in the market device independent apps. Both SDKs are available for downloading at http://www.samsungdforum.com/

System Requirements Wording

Usually I receive from my students (especially during thesis supervision) the question if there is a standard way to describe the wording of a system requirements.
An interesting approach to this is IETF RFC 2119, which defines the key words “MUST”, “MUST NOT”, “REQUIRED”, “SHALL”, “SHALL NOT”, “SHOULD”, “SHOULD NOT”, “RECOMMENDED”, “MAY”, and “OPTIONAL”

1. MUST This word, or the terms “REQUIRED” or “SHALL”, mean that the definition is an absolute requirement of the specification.

2. MUST NOT This phrase, or the phrase “SHALL NOT”, mean that the definition is an absolute prohibition of the specification.

3. SHOULD This word, or the adjective “RECOMMENDED”, mean that there may exist valid reasons in particular circumstances to ignore a particular item, but the full implications must be understood and carefully weighed before choosing a different course.

4. SHOULD NOT This phrase, or the phrase “NOT RECOMMENDED” mean that there may exist valid reasons in particular circumstances when the particular behavior is acceptable or even useful, but the full implications should be understood and the case carefully weighed before implementing any behavior described with this label.

5. MAY This word, or the adjective “OPTIONAL”, mean that an item is truly optional. One vendor may choose to include the item because a particular marketplace requires it or because the vendor feels that it enhances the product while another vendor may omit the same item.

2nd IEEE PEDISWESA’10

2nd IEEE Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Communications in
Distributed Systems and Web based Service Architectures (PEDISWESA’10)

RIccione, Italy, June 22 – 25, 2010

In conjunction with the 15th IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (IEEE ISCC’10)

http://lacl.univ-paris12.fr/mokdad/WorkshopIscc2010/index.htm

http://www.ieee-iscc.org/2010/

Scope

Performance evaluation is still a topic that attains a lot of attention in both distributed
and mobile systems as well as Web based services architectures. Due to the recent
advances in internet based applications as well as distributed and mobile communication systems, we are witnessing a variety of new technologies. However, these systems
are becoming very large and complex at the same time. Several challenges remain to be
resolved before these systems become a commodity. Guaranteeing QoS and provisioning
of web-based systems as well as distributed and mobile systems and evaluating their
communication performance represent among the challenging problem in the design of
these systems. Quantitative analysis can be very difficult and may be intractable because
of the state space explosion. New methods and tools have recently emerged for these
kinds of complex systems, such as Stochastic Automata Networks, Stochastic bounds, PEPA, just to mention a few.
This workshop focuses on the performance evaluation of both distributed and mobile
systems, as well as Web based services architectures using both analytical methods
and simulation studies. Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting new
research related to QoS and communication performance evaluation of these systems. Submitted papers must not have been previously published elsewhere nor currently under review in any another conference or journal.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
· Communication performance evaluation of distributed and mobile systems
· Performance evaluation of distributed and web-based systems · Measurement, analysis, modeling · Tools and software for performance evaluation · Simulation and measurements techniques · QoS for Web services architectures · Services Web composition · Quantitative analysis · Stochastic comparisons · Network Protocols design for Web service devices · Routing optimization · Bandwidth management This workshop focuses upon the QoS and communication performance analysis, methods
and modeling of distributed systems and Web based services architectures. Workshop and Program Co-Chairs
