The Market Demonstrator is a decentral, robust, and scalable peer-to-peer infrastructure. It implements the interactions of three market participants (user, service provider, OTF provider) with the OTF market. In addition to a publish/subscribe mechanism and monitoring, this includes search, configuration, and matching of services.
The Market Demonstrator applies existing technologies like FreePastry and SCRIBE for network communication purposes. The graphical user interface is realized as an Eclipse Rich Client Platform.
