A Process Calculus Analysis of Compensations [chapter]

Luís Caires, Carla Ferreira, Hugo Vieira
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Conversations in service-oriented computation are frequently long running.  ...  In this paper, we investigate the representation and analysis of structured compensating transactions within a process calculus model, by embedding in the Conversation Calculus certain structured compensation  ...  as atomic actions in compensable programs.  ...

The duality of fault-tolerant system structures

Santosh K. Shrivastava, Luigi V. Mancini, Brian Randell
1993 Software, Practice & Experience  
The first model incorporates objects and actions as the entities for program construction while the second model employs communicating processes.  ...  Applications in the areas such as office information and database systems typically use the first model while applications in the area of real time process control are usually based on the second model  ...  This work was supported in part by research grants from SERC/Alvey and the UK Ministry of Defence.  ...

Analysis and Design of Distributed Pair Programming System

Wanfeng Dou, Yifeng Wang, Sen Luo
2010 Intelligent Information Management  
Pair Programming (PP) that has gained extensive focus within pedagogical and industrial environments is a programming practice in which two programmers use the same computer to work together on analysis  ...  By means of activity theory and language-action theory, some basic requirements of the DPP system are presented.  ...  The conversation for action forms the central fabric of a DPP. In a simple conversation for action, the driver (A) in a pair programming makes a request to the navigator (B).  ...

Integrating jason in a multi-agent platform with support for interaction protocols

Bexy Alfonso, Emilio Vivancos, Vicent Botti, Ana García-Fornes
2011 Proceedings of the compilation of the co-located workshops on DSM'11, TMC'11, AGERE!'11, AOOPES'11, NEAT'11, & VMIL'11 - SPLASH '11 Workshops  
In this paper we present a proposal to add to Jason (an interpreter of an extended version of AgentSpeak) a new level of abstraction in the task of programming conversations between agents.  ...  Therefore, the agents can use this knowledge in its reasoning process. This approach can be easily transfered to others agent programming languages and platforms.  ...  For instance, the programmer can write some code in Java to program the environment, or to construct Jason "internal actions".  ...

A Computational Semantics for Communicating Rational Agents Based on Mental Models [chapter]

Koen V. Hindriks, M. Birna van Riemsdijk
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As coordination is particularly important, we introduce the concept of a conversation to synchronize actions and communication in a multi-agent system.  ...  For agents that derive their choice of action from their beliefs and goals it is natural to facilitate communication about both these attitudes in an agent programming language.  ...  The program discussed in Section 5 provides examples of various user-specified actions.  ...

Feature Interaction Detection in Active Networks [chapter]

Go Ogose, Jyunya Yoshida, Tae Yoneda, Tadashi Ohta
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Problems arising with supplementary service programs uploaded by users: such as event conversion and detection of feature interactions between the programs, are presented and their solutions are proposed  ...  Unlike most conventional architectures, here, one common execution environment is used for execution with all up-loaded programs. 12 service programs were tested to evaluate the proposed systems.  ...  Action Executing Part On receiving an Action-description from the interpreter, the Action executing part of the program analyzes it and decides which programs are to be executed and in what order.  ...

The design and implementation of a high-level language converter

Vincent D. Moynihan, Peter J. L. Wallis
1991 Software, Practice & Experience  
These general issues are illustrated in terms of an account of the design and implementation of one particular converter, which converts programs from Pascal-SC (a Pascal dialect) to Ada.  ...  A specific aim of the presentation is to provide guidance for those contemplating future language conversion projects.  ...  These comprise less straightforward conversions, actions that were not implemented because the effort involved was not justified by the consequent savings in handediting effort, and actions requiring further  ...
