Smooth Orchestrators [chapter]

Cosimo Laneve, Luca Padovani
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A smooth orchestrator is a process with several alternative branches, every one defining synchronizations among co-located channels.  ...  Smooth orchestrators may be created in one location and migrated to a different one, still not manifesting problems that usually afflict generic mobile agents.  ...  The implementation of smooth orchestrators Smooth orchestrators are small pieces of code that may migrate over the network for reaching the location where they execute.  ...
