Improving the dynamism of mobile agent applications in wireless sensor networks through separate itineraries

Estanislao Mercadal, Carlos Vidueira, Cormac J. Sreenan, Joan Borrell
2013 Computer Communications  
This application shows the impact of fault-tolerance through the use of several agents with different migration strategies from separate itineraries.  ...  By considering the itinerary separately from the agent code, we gain an additional level of adaptability and reactivity in Agilla applications, similar to that already available in WISEMAN applications  ...  To prevent this accumulation of mobile agents we use a token-like solution: a special tuple is stored in the node's tuple space.  ...

An experimental evaluation of self-managing availability in shared data spaces

Giovanni Russello, Michel R.V. Chaudron, Maarten van Steen, Ibrahim Bokharouss
2007 Science of Computer Programming  
With its decoupling of processes in space and time, the shared data space model has proven to be a well-suited solution for developing distributed component-based systems.  ...  In particular, we present a solution that allows developers to merely specify availability requirements for data tuples, while the underlying middleware evaluates various distribution and replication policies  ...  In this work, code mobility is exploited as a mechanism for fault tolerance.  ...

CoorSet: A Development Environment for Associatively Coordinated Components [chapter]

Kevin Kane, James C. Browne
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The previous associative broadcast coordination model is extended to incorporate more complex specifications for interactions including multiple message interactions and fault-tolerance by replication.  ...  An interface definition language based on the extended coordination model and a compiler for the language are defined and described.  ...  We also wish to express our gratitude to the reviewers who suggested additional related work for our consideration, as well as future lines of research.  ...

Distributed Systems with Wireless Sensor Networks

Noemi Rodriguez, Silvana Rossetto
2012 2012 IEEE 26th International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium Workshops & PhD Forum  
We propose to use a wireless sensor network environment to pin all topics down to concrete applications and to maintain issues such as fault tolerance and coordination continuously present.  ...  Conventional distributed system courses follow a syllabus in which a list of topics is discussed independently and at different levels of abstractions.  ...  The work that seems more closely related to this proposal is that of authors working on fault tolerance.  ...

A Survey of Application Distribution in Wireless Sensor Networks

Mauri Kuorilehto, Marko Hännikäinen, Timo D Hämäläinen
2005 EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking  
In addition, a summary of WSN application proposals is presented in order to define requirements.  ...  The proposed solutions vary according to tools provided, requirements placed on the underlying platforms, and targeted applications and environments.  ...  To make the delivery of a packet reliable, acknowledgements must be used. This is more lightweight than the tuple space, and the fault tolerance does not depend on the available recipients.  ...

Linda implementations in Java for concurrent systems

G. C. Wells, A. G. Chalmers, P. G. Clayton
2004 Concurrency and Computation  
The Linda programming model Linda is a coordination language for parallel and distributed processing, providing a communication mechanism based on a logically shared memory space called tuple space.  ...  Linda effectively provides an application programmer with a small set of operations that may be used to place tuples into tuple space (out) and to retrieve tuples from tuple space (in which removes the  ...  The constructive criticism provided by the anonymous referees, which helped to substantially improve the original draft of this paper, is also gratefully acknowledged.  ...

2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Unfortunately, standard replication techniques for wired environments mostly target improvements to fault-tolerance and access time, and in general are not well-suited to the dynamic environment defined  ...  In this paper we explore replication for mobility in the context of a veneer for Lime, a Linda-based middleware for MANETs.  ...  The authors wish to thank Francesco Merlo and Massimo Montani for their implementation of the work described here.  ...
