Launching Aspect: Deploying and Launching the Application

Deploying and starting the application is accomplished using the DAnCE (Deployment and Configuration Engine) runtime infrastructure that enables the deployment and launching of an application.

CoSMIC synthesizes a flattened deployment plan for use by DAnCE to deploy and launch a distributed application. DAnCE is a standards-compliant implementation (see this architecture diagram) of the OMG Deployment and Configuration Specification used for our real-time CORBA Component Model middleware called CIAO.
