Scalability is an important issue in the construction of distributed systems. Shared object spaces provide an elegant and easy-to program abstraction for building applications. However, existing shared object spaces have been realized at the cluster level. Use of centralized components, lack of effective failure handling mechanisms, lack of efficient object(More)
Current mobile and distributed applications are being developed using J2ME, J2EE, CORBA, DCOM, etc. Developing applications for distributed and mobile systems is a tedious process, because the applications in these systems are open for change in requirements. So providing a language support for application development in open systems is vital.(More)
The abundant computing resources available on the Internet has made grid computing over the Internet a viable solution, to scientific problems. The dynamic nature of the Internet necessitates dynamic reconfigurability of applications to handle failures and varying loads. Most of the existing grid solutions handle reconfigurability to a limited extent. These(More)
The advance of technology in terms of cellular communications and the increasing computing power of the mobile systems have made it convenient for people to use more of mobile systems rather than static systems. This has seen more of mobile devices in personal and distributed computing, thus making the computing power ubiquitous. The combination of wireless(More)
Data objects have to be replicated in large scale distributed systems for reasons of fault-tolerance, availability and performance. Further, computations may have to be scheduled on these objects, when these objects are part of a grid computation. Though replication mechanism for unstructured P2P systems can place replicas on capable nodes, they may not be(More)
Complex systems such as those in evolution, growth and depinning models do not evolve slowly and gradually, but exhibit avalanche dynamics or punctuated equilibria. Self-Organized Criticality (SOC) and Highly Optimized Tolerance (HOT) are two theoretical models that explain such avalanche dynamics. We have studied avalanche dynamics in two vastly different(More)
