IP protection

1 Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
  • Combine existing solutions like Gnome’s GConf configuration system and Preferences Service which is provided by OSGi
  • Stored in xml files


2 What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
Provide user profile (as file) in different locations; local on the device and remote on the server side. The synchronization process has to be carefully considered.The “migration” mechanism has already brought up many issues that have to be considered during the development phase. Most of them were taken into account.


3 What is the potential for further research?
Improvement of the synchronization techniques by providing additional functionalities


4 What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)
To be examined. License seems to be the most suitable method for the U.Pro.Me.


5 What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?


6 What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
The research result is a fully working prototype that is roughly 70-80% of the final product.
