The current RFID middleware standard is ALE (Application Level Event) of EPCglobal that takes the lead in RFID standardization. ALE suggests the minimal interface and extension points so that it can be operated independently from system infrastructure, and actual implementation is left to vendors. But there is no specific mention with regard to functional extension through extension points, and It is very hard to extend or modify the function on running system. To solve this problem, we suggest AOP (Aspect Oriented Programming)-based ALE middleware framework for developing RFID middleware. In addition, we designed aspect for RFID middleware for implementing and extending functions according to ALE rules and for the convenience of maintenance.
