Introduction and usage of the Orion Context Broker, implemetation of the Publish/Subscribe Broker GE and the Backend Configuration Manager GE.

If you are developing a Data/Context scenario, a broker like the Orion Context Broker is a must. You would need a component in the architecture able to mediate between consumer producers (e.g. sensors) and the context consumer applications (e.g. an smartphone applications taking advantage of the context information provided by the sensors). The Orion Context Broker fulfils this functionality in your architecture.
