Jalapeño is a virtual machine for Java TM servers written in the Java language. To be able to address the requirements of servers (performance and scalability in particular), Jalapeño was designed " from scratch " to be as self-sufficient as possible. Jalapeño's unique object model and memory layout allows a hardware null-pointer check as well as fast… (More)
Concert/C is a new language for distributed C programming that extends ANSI C to support distribution and process dynamics. Concert/C provides the ability to create and terminate processes, connect them together, and communicate among them. It supports transparent remote function calls (RPC) and asynchronous messages. Interprocess communications interfaces… (More)
We describe the design and implementation of the Concert/C compiler and runtime. We describe solutions to the problems of (1) how to extend a language without compromising the use of legacy source and object code and tools, (2) how to extract language-neutral interface information from native language type declarations , (3) how to make function pointers… (More)
Degradation and restoration in remnant tallgrass prairie: Grazing history, soil carbon, and invasive species affect community composition and response to the fire-grazing interaction" (2008). Graduate Theses and Dissertations. Paper 11173.
In the Concert multilanguage distributed programming system, interface specification is the responsibility of programming languages, not a separate IDL. However, an IDL is still necessary in order to define equivalence between declarations in different languages. A single representation is also desirable internally to economize on aspects of the… (More)
This paper presents a strategy to simplify the programming of heterogeneous distributed systems. Our approach is based on integrating a high-level distributed programming model, called the process model, directly into programming languages. Distributed applications written in such languages are portable across diierent environments, are shorter, and are… (More)
INTRODUCTION Protein C, because of its central role in hemostasis, plays an integral role in the host response to infection. Protein C depletion, resulting from increased consumption, degradation, and/or decreased synthesis, is characteristic of sepsis and has been shown to predict morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to determine… (More)
