Middleware exists between distributed applications and the operating system, networks, and hardware. This layer of software hides the details of the distributed system while providing common services. The Internet 2 Middleware Initiative is focused on a set of research and development objectives in the area of core middleware services. Through the use of working groups, the Internet 2 community supports various middleware projects that develop and use core middleware services.
