An Open Systems Strategy for Distributed occam Execution

Authors: Singleton, Paul, Cook, Barry M.


We demonstrate the feasibility of distributed execution of occam programs within computer networks which support open systems standards for inter-process communication, remote execution and program hosting (e.g. hardware-independent programming languages and operating-system-independent APIs). We first propose a general architecture, and then describe a constructive proof of its viability (i.e. a prototype). which uses a novel multiplexed virtual channel protocol over UNIX sockets. Finally we summarise some of the opportunities for further development which this project has created.
