Dynamic Typing for Distributed Programming in Polymorphic Languages

  title={Dynamic Typing for Distributed Programming in Polymorphic Languages},
  author={Dominic Duggan},
  journal={ACM Trans. Program. Lang. Syst.},
While static typing is widely accepted as being necessary for secure program execution, dynamic typing is also viewed as being essential in some applications, particularly for distributed programming environments. Dynamics have been proposed as a language construct for dynamic typing, based on experience with languages such as CLU, Cedar/Mesa, and Modula-3. However proposals for incorporating dynamic typing into languages with parametric polymorphism have serious shortcomings. A new approach is… CONTINUE READING
