Краткий обзор статьи: Astronomy is entering in a new era of Extreme Intensive Data Computation and we have identified three major issues the new generation of projects have to face: Resource optimization, Heterogeneous Software Ecosystem and Data Transfer. We propose in this article a middleware solution offering a very modular and maintainable system for data analysis. As computations must be designed and described by specialists in astronomy, we aim at defining a friendly specific programming language to enable coding of astrophysical problems abstracted from any computer science specific issues. This way we expect substantial benefits in computing capabilities in data analysis. As a first development using our solution, we propose a cross-matching service for the Taiwan Extragalactic Astronomical Data Center.
