Using middleware infrastructures that enable communication among different nodes in a system may alleviate aspects related to management and development cost in flexible environments. In that context the article presents an auction architecture with certain real-time requirements that have to be satisfied. The architecture implements a continuous double action (CDA) algorithm for a real-time middleware. The article describes the architecture (actors and goals) and the results obtained by using common-off-the-shelf real-time middleware.
