The project provides an API for the actual implementation of software connectors, whose aim is to ensure interoperability among heterogeneous software entities, based on a mediator algebra developed within the Work Package WP2 of the CONNECT EU project ( The implementation of the API is based on the use of Enterprise Integration Patterns ( and is developed through the Apache Camel framework ( The mediator algebra structures the concept of software connector treating it like a suitable composition of mediation primitives. The provided API is an object-oriented implementation of both the algebra primitives and the composition operators. The main goal of this project is to express the development concepts existing in Camel and re-expose them to connector developers by following the modular structure defined by the above mentioned algebra where mediation primitives and composition operators become first-class entities for writing the actual code implementing a software connector.
The CONNECT project acknowledges the financial support of the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme within the ICT theme of the Seventh Framework Programme for Research of the European Commission.
