The fundamental characteristics of a distributed computing environment are heterogeneity, partial failure, latency and difficulty of " gluing together " multiple, independent processes into a robust, scalable application. JavaSpaces, which is a shared memory paradigm, provides high-level coordination mechanism for Java easing the burden of creating(More)
With multiprocessor computers becoming more readily available on college campuses and with the recent development of software tools to aid in the implementation of parallel algorithms, it is time for parallel processing to enter the undergraduate curriculum. In this paper we show how widely available tools combined with concepts learned in an operating(More)
With the resurgence of interest in distributed processing and programming of distributed systems, researchers are exploring methods and techniques for facilitating programming of such systems. In this paper we demonstrate the ease of use and performance characteristics of socket communication for scripting languages PERL and Python. Productivity is enhanced(More)
