A Traffic Analysis on Serverless Computing Based on the Example of a File Upload Stream on AWS Lambda (2020)
Journal Article
Muller, L., Chrysoulas, C., Pitropakis, N., & Barclay, P. J. (2020). A Traffic Analysis on Serverless Computing Based on the Example of a File Upload Stream on AWS Lambda. Big Data and Cognitive Computing, 4(4), Article 38. https://doi.org/10.3390/bdcc4040038

The shift towards microservisation which can be observed in recent developments of the cloud landscape for applications has led towards the emergence of the Function as a Service (FaaS) concept, also called Serverless. This term describes the event-d... Read More about A Traffic Analysis on Serverless Computing Based on the Example of a File Upload Stream on AWS Lambda.

Application of evolutionary algorithms to learning evolved Bayesian Network models of rig operations in the Gulf of Mexico (2010)
Conference Proceeding
Fournier, F. A., Wu, Y., McCall, J., Petrovski, A., & Barclay, P. J. (2010). Application of evolutionary algorithms to learning evolved Bayesian Network models of rig operations in the Gulf of Mexico. In 2010 UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence (UKCI). https://doi.org/10.1109/UKCI.2010.5625588

The operation of drilling rigs is highly expensive. It is therefore important to be able to identify and analyse variables affecting rig operations. We investigate the use of Genetic Algorithms and Ant Colony Optimisation to induce a Bayesian Network...

Evolved Bayesian Network models of rig operations in the Gulf of Mexico (2010)
Conference Proceeding
Fournier, F. A., McCall, J., Petrovski, A., & Barclay, P. J. (2010). Evolved Bayesian Network models of rig operations in the Gulf of Mexico. In IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation. https://doi.org/10.1109/cec.2010.5586021

The operation of drilling rigs is highly expensive. It is therefore important to be able to identify and analyse factors affecting rig operations. We investigate the use of two Genetic Algorithms, K2GA and ChainGA, to induce a Bayesian Network model... Read More about Evolved Bayesian Network models of rig operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Teallach — a flexible user-interface development environment for object database applications (2003)
Journal Article
Barclay, P. J., Griffiths, T., McKirdy, J., Kennedy, J., Cooper, R., Paton, N. W., & Gray, P. (2003). Teallach — a flexible user-interface development environment for object database applications. Journal of Visual Languages and Computing, 14(1), 47-77. https://doi.org/10.1016/s1045-926x%2802%2900056-3

The Teallach project has adapted model-based user-interface development techniques to the systematic creation of user-interfaces for object-oriented database applications. Model-based approaches aim to provide designers with a more principled approac... Read More about Teallach — a flexible user-interface development environment for object database applications.

Interoperable Services for Federations of Database System (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Roantree, M., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. J. (2002). Interoperable Services for Federations of Database System. In A. Caplinskas, & J. Eder (Eds.), Advances in Databases and Information Systems: Fifth East-European Conference ADBIS' 2001

The problems associated with defining interoperable protocols for heterogenous information systems has been the subject of researchers for many years. While numerous solutions have been offered, the problem remains unsolved, mainly due to the distinc... Read More about Interoperable Services for Federations of Database System.

Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. (2002)
Journal Article
Raguenaud, C., Pullan, M. R., Watson, M. F., Kennedy, J., Newman, M. F., & Barclay, P. J. (2002). Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. Taxon, 51(1), 131-142. https://doi.org/10.2307/1554970

Types of databases commonly used for handling taxonomic data are compared. It is shown that none of the existing types of databases fully support the requirements of taxonomic data. The results of this comparison provide a rationale for the design an...

Integrating View Schemata Using an Extended Object Definition Language (2001)
Conference Proceeding
Roantree, M., Kennedy, J. B., & Barclay, P. J. (2001). Integrating View Schemata Using an Extended Object Definition Language. In C. Batini, F. Giunchiglia, P. Giorgini, & M. Mecella (Eds.), Cooperative Information Systems; Lecture Notes in Computer Science (150-163). https://doi.org/10.1007/3-540-44751-2_13

View mechanisms play an important role in restructuring data for users, while maintaining the integrity and autonomy for the underlying database schema. Although far more complex than their relational counterparts, numerous object-oriented view mecha... Read More about Integrating View Schemata Using an Extended Object Definition Language.

Using a metadata software layer in information systems integration. (2001)
Conference Proceeding
Roantree, M., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. J. (2001). Using a metadata software layer in information systems integration. In Advanced systems engineering: CAiSE'01 - Software Engineering meets Information Systems Engineering (299-314). https://doi.org/10.1007/3-540-45341-5_20

A federated information system requires that multiple (often heterogenous) information systems are integrated to an extent that they can share data. This shared data often takes the form of a federated schema, which is a global view of data taken fro... Read More about Using a metadata software layer in information systems integration..

The Prometheus taxonomic database (2000)
Conference Proceeding
Raguenaud, C., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. (2000). The Prometheus taxonomic database. In Proceedings IEEE International Symposium on Bio-Informatics and Biomedical Engineering (63-70). https://doi.org/10.1109/bibe.2000.889590

M.R. Pullen et al. (2000) have designed a new model of plant taxonomy (called Prometheus); it supports multiple overlapping classifications, and distinguishes the process of naming from classifying. The concepts identified in this taxonomic model nec... Read More about The Prometheus taxonomic database.
