Modules in a distributed program are active, communicating entities. A language for distributed programs must choose a set of communication primitives and a structure for processes. This paper examines one possible choice: synchronous communication primitives (such as rendez-vous or remote procedure call) in combination with modules that encompass a fixed number of processes (such as Ada tasks or UNIX processes). An analysis of the concurrency requirements of distributed programs suggests that… CONTINUE READING
