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 as an integrated multiprocessor. Amber is specifically designed for high performance in the case where each node in the network is a shared-memory multiprocessor. Amber shows that support for loosely-coupled multiprocessing can be efficiently realized using an objectbased programming model.
