Abstract: We present a new and flexible developer framework for high performance SOA based systems, using the middleware called ICE by ZeroC Inc. for interprocess communication. The framework was developed at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy within the scope of the LBT interferometer LINC-NIRVANA control software, but may also be used, in respect of its flexibility, for other astronomical instruments. The systems architecture was designed to decrease the development effort of large SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) based systems like astronomical instrument control software. The advantages of this new framework is the combination of online instrument data management, validation and the ability to integrate user defined data manipulation, which is executed during instrument operation. This way the developer/astronomer may include just-in-time data pipelining functionalities into the system.
