Linda-like coordination languages are based on manipulating a shared coordination medium. A coordination language usually defines the kind of elements, operations to construct elements, and the actual coordination operations that manipulate the shared media. Berlinda is a model and a platform, on which coordination languages à la Linda and beyond can be implemented. As example coordination languages, a simple version of Linda and a subset of KQML have been implemented.
