The aim of the Do! project is to ease the task of programming distributed applications using Java. In a rst step, the programmer writes his application as a shared-memory parallel program, by deening the components of the program; in a second step, the programmer deenes the component locations on distinct hosts; in a third step, our preprocessor transforms(More)
Disconnected mobile ad hoc networks (or D-MANETs) are partially or intermittently connected wireless networks in which instant end-to-end connectivity between any pair of mobile hosts is never guaranteed. Recent advances in delay/disruption-tolerant networking make it possible to support communication in such conditions, but designing and implementing(More)
Opportunistic networks are partially connected wireless ad hoc networks, in which pairwise unpredicted transient contacts between mobile devices are the only opportunities for these devices to exchange information or services. Ensuring the coordination of multiple parts of a distributed application in such conditions is a challenge. This paper presents a(More)
Online social networks have been adopted by a large part of the population, and have become in few years essential communication means and a source of information for journalists. Nevertheless, these networks have some drawbacks that make people reluctant to use them, such as the impossibility to claim for ownership of data and to avoid commercial analysis(More)
Disconnected mobile ad hoc networks (or D-MANETs) are partially or intermittently connected wireless networks, in which continuous end-to-end connectivity between mobile nodes is not guaranteed. The ability to self-form and self-manage brings great opportunities for D-MANETs, but developing distributed applications capable of running in such networks(More)
The C3PO project promotes the development of a new kind of social networks called Spontaneous and Ephemeral Social Networks (SESNs), dedicated to cultural or sports events. SESNs rely on opportunistic networks formed dynamically by the mobile devices of event attendees. This paper presents the framework developed in the C3PO project to support opportunistic(More)
A disconnected mobile ad hoc network (or D-MANET) is a wireless network, which because of the sparse distribution of mobile hosts appears at best as a partially or intermittently connected network. Designing and implementing distributed applications capable of running in such a challenged environment is not a trivial task. Middleware systems such as Java(More)
