Event filtering is an essential element in event management applications. In event management
environments, the filtering mechanisms are employed to track the events generated from appli-
cations at run-time and perform the corresponding appropriate actions. Several key applications
domains, such as system and network management, distributed system toolkits, communication
protocols and active databases, utilize event filtering for various management purposes. The goal
of this paper is to describe the object-oriented design and implementation of an adaptive event
filtering framework which can be integrated and reused efficiently to develop event management
applications for various domain environments. In our approach, the event filtering framework
captures the common components and design patterns of event management in different domains.
The major contribution of this work is to provide a flexible event filtering framework that can be
efficiently adapted to different domain-specific requirements and with minimal development effort.
In this paper, we also present examples of using the event filtering framework for developing event
