ECOOP' 93 — Object-Oriented Programming
This paper describes the Gaggle, a mechanism for grouping and naming objects in an object-oriented distributed system. Using Gaggles, client objects can access distributed replicated services without regard for the number of objects that provide the service. Gaggles are not themselves a replication mechanism; instead they enable programmers to construct their own replicated distributed services in whatever way is appropriate for the application at hand, and then to encapsulate the result.
