This paper introduces a mobile agent-based infrastructure for an adaptive multi-media server enabling a dynamic migration or replication of certain multimedia applications among a set of available server nodes. It discusses the requirements from both, the server’s and the middleware’s point of view to each other and comes up with a specification and implementation of a CORBA-based interface between them.
