A Hybrid Visual Dataflow Language for Coordination in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Abstract : Because of the dynamic nature of mobile ad hoc networks and the applications running on top of them, these applications have to be conceived as event-driven architectures. Such architectures are hard to program because coordination between concurrent and distributed mobile components has to be expressed by means of event handlers or callbacks. Applications consisting of disjoint event handlers that are independently triggered (possibly by their environment) exhibit a very implicit control flow that is hard to grasp. This paper presents a visual dataflow language tailored towards mobile applications to express the interaction between mobile components that operate on data streams. By using a visual dataflow language as a separate coordination language, the coarse grained control flow of a mobile application can be specified visually and separately from the fine grained control flow. In its turn, this allows a very explicit view on the control flow of the entire mobile application.
