Interest has grown rapidly over the past dozen years in the application of object-oriented programming and methods to the development of distributed, open systems. This volume presents the proceedings of a workshop intended to assess the current state of research in this field and to facilitate interaction between groups working on very different aspects of object-oriented distributed systems. The workshop was held as part of the 1993 European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP '93). Over fifty people submitted position papers and participated in the workshop, and almost half presented papers. The presented papers were carefully reviewed and revised after the workshop, and 14 papers were selected for this volume.
Models and paradigms of interaction.- Architectural convergence and the granularity of objects in distributed systems.- Separation of distribution and objects.- Integrating structural and operational programming to manage distributed systems.- Concurrency and communication: Choices in implementing the coordination language LO.- Toward languages and formal systems for distributed computing.- Decomposing and recomposing transactional concepts.- DPL to express a concurrency control using transaction and object semantics.- A reflective invocation scheme to realise advanced object management.- Abstracting object interactions using composition filters.- Object-oriented distributed programming in BETA.- A flexible system design to support object-groups and object-oriented distributed programming.- Distributed programming in GARF.- Object-oriented extendibility in Hermes/ST, a transactional distributed programming environment.
