Migrating objects in electronic commerce applications [chapter]

Marko Boger
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Its aim is to simplify the design and development of such distributed systems. Concurrency and distribution are expressed using the same mechanism, virtual processors.  ...  In such an environment client/server architectures reach the limit of their capability. Non-centralized distributed architectures with object and code migration are more suitable.  ...  A fine grained approach where the subject of movement is the object itself like in Emerald is problematic, mainly because the grouping of objects becomes a tedious and error-prone work.  ...

Observations on building distributed languages and systems [chapter]

Richard D. Schlichting, Gregory R. Andrews, Norman C. Hutchinson, Ronald A. Olsson, Larry L. Peterson
1988 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper surveys projects in distributed languages and systems at the University of Arizona, and offers observations based on the experience gained during their design, implementation, and use.  ...  programming language Emerald, and the Psync interprocess communication mechanism.  ...  One novel aspect of Emerald's uniform object model is its support for fine-grained mobility. Mobility in the Emerald system differs from existing process migration schemes in two important respects.  ...

Pervasive Computing with Frugal Objects

Benoit Garbinato, Rachid Guerraoui, Jarle Hulaas, Maxime Monod, Jesper H. Spring
2007 21st International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications Workshops (AINAW'07)  
This paper presents a computing model for resource-limited mobile devices that might be ubiquitously deployed in private and business environments.  ...  The model integrates a strongly-typed event-based communication paradigm with abstractions for frugal control, assuming a small footprint runtime.  ...  Thus, the coupling between the fine-grained behavioral representation and the fine-grained serialization mechanism is a memoryefficient combination suited for resource-constrained devices.  ...

Nested Java processes

Patrick Tullman, Jay Lepreau
1998 Proceedings of the 8th ACM SIGOPS European workshop on Support for composing distributed applications - EW 8  
The majority of work on protection in single-language mobile code environments focuses on information security issues and depends on the language environment for solutions to the problems of resource management  ...  We present Alta, our prototype Java-based system patterned on Fluke, a highly structured, hardware-based OS, and report on its features appropriate to mobile code.  ...  We thank David Andersen for conceiving the network management example. Many other members of Utah's Flux research group have helped along the way.  ...

The development of the Emerald programming language

Andrew P. Black, Norman C. Hutchinson, Eric Jul, Henry M. Levy
2007 Proceedings of the third ACM SIGPLAN conference on History of programming languages - HOPL III  
Emerald is an object-based programming language and system designed and implemented in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Washington in the early and mid-1980s.  ...  This paper describes the origins of the Emerald group, the forces that formed the language, the influences that Emerald has had on subsequent distributed systems and programming languages, and some of  ...  Our external referee, Andrew Watson, along with Andrew Herbert, helped to reconstruct the influence of the Emerald type system.  ...

Emerald: A general-purpose programming language

Rajendra K. Raj, Ewan Tempero, Henry M. Levy, Andrew P. Black, Norman C. Hutchinson, Eric Jul
1991 Software, Practice & Experience  
We give examples that demonstrate Emerald's features, and compare and contrast the Emerald approach to programming with the approaches used in other similar languages.  ...  It is strongly typed with a nontraditional object model and type system that emphasize abstract types, allow separation of typing and implementation, and provide the flexibility of polymorphism and subtyping  ...  This means that there can be multiple simultaneous invocations of an operation in the same object. Each invocation can proceed independently, providing fine-grained parallelism.  ...

An orthogonal distribution language for uniform object-oriented languages [chapter]

Michael Fäustle
1993 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
On one side the complexity of the design of distributed application systems is usually reduced significantly by using a distributed programming model that abstracts from the actual distribution and maybe  ...  It allows the developer to independently describe and adapt the decomposition and distribution of an application written in a uniform object-oriented and distributiontransparent language independently;  ...  Object-oriented programming languages suggest a more fine-grained approach to distributed computing using mobile objects that can be migrated dynamically.  ...

The Amber system: parallel programming on a network of multiprocessors

J. Chase, F. Amador, E. Lazowska, H. Levy, R. Littlefield
1989 Proceedings of the twelfth ACM symposium on Operating systems principles - SOSP '89  
This paper describes a programming system called Amber that permits a single application program to use a homogeneous network of computers in a uniform way, making the network appear to the application  ...  Amber is specifically designed for high performance in the case where each node in the network is a shared-memory multiprocessor.  ...  We believe that fine-grained synchronization using lock primitives is desirable when the nodes in the network are multiprocessors.  ...

Code management automation for Erlang remote actors

Adrian Francalanza, Tyron Zerafa
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 workshop on Programming based on actors, agents, and decentralized control - AGERE! '13  
We propose a higher-level framework for the remote spawn of sideeffect free actors, abstracting from and automating codebase migration and management.  ...  However, for remote spawn to function properly, the node hosting the spawned actor must share the same codebase as that of the node launching the actor.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors are grateful to Richard O'Keefe, Steve Vinoski and other contributors on various Erlang fora for fruitful discussions.  ...

Parallel programming inPanda

H. Assenmacher, T. Breitbach, P. Buhler, V. H�bsch, H. Peine, R. Schwarz
1995 Journal of Supercomputing  
The problem of sharing data in a distributed environment is discussed, and the performance of appropriate mechanisms provided by the PANDA prototype implementation is assessed.  ...  Distributed systems are an alternative to shared-memory multiprocessors for the execution of parallel applications.  ...  Both systems support fine-grained parallelism on shared-memory multiprocessors, but do not address distribution.  ...

Software engineering for mobility

Gruia-Catalin Roman, Gian Pietro Picco, Amy L. Murphy
2000 Proceedings of the conference on The future of Software engineering - ICSE '00  
Stability is the ideal mode of operation; changes are relatively slow; even in the case of failure, nodes and links are expected eventually to come back up.  ...  We seek to sort out this chaotic form of computing by focusing our attention on the formulation of a simple framework for viewing mobility, on precise definition of terms, and on research issues mobility  ...  So far, despite its theoretical and practical relevance, fine-grained mobility received only limited attention in the formal models community.  ...
