Portable and Efficient Distributed Threads for Java

  title={Portable and Efficient Distributed Threads for Java},
  author={Eli Tilevich and Yannis Smaragdakis},
Java middleware mechanisms, such as Java RMI or CORBA implementations, do not support thread coordination over the network: synchronizing on remote objects does not work correctly and thread identity is not preserved for executions spanning multiple machines. The current approaches dealing with the problem suffer from one of two weaknesses: either they require a new middleware mechanism, making them less portable, or they add overhead to the execution to propagate a thread identifier through… CONTINUE READING
