Load Sharing in a Heterogeneous Distributed Object-based System

  • Josef Matulka
Conference paper


Networks are quite commonplace nowadays; physically combining heterogeneous computers in a local area network is not a problem any longer. Distributed software that makes efficient use of this hardware, on the contrary, is much more difficult to design. The object based approach is a promising paradigm for designing and implementing distributed software; unfortunately it is notorious for its performance problems.
