%X Helios is an Operating System designed to exploit highly
distributed systems. The central goal of such a distributed
system, is not only to provide increased fault tolerance,
but also increased performance. This necessitates adequate
support for parallelism at the application level. It is
proposed that instead of extending an existing language, or
producing a completely new language, parallelism can be
defined at the distribution phase. A high level Component
Distribution Language has been designed, which allows simple
sequential components to be combined by simple parallel
constructors to form more complex parallel structures. The
implementation language is irrelevant thus providing
consistent support for standard sequential languages in a
