Re-Configurable Distributed Scripting



Mudumbai Ranganathan, L S. Andrey, V Schaal, J Favreau


A large class of distributed testing, control and collaborative applications are reactive or event driven in nature. Such applications can be structured as a set of handlers that react to events and that in turn can trigger other events. We have developed an application building toolkit that facilitates development of such applications. Our system allows the construction of distributed applications that can be dynamically reconfigured and extended while in execution. This feature can be exploited by constructing dynamic applications that can adapt to available resources. In this paper we describe our toolkit and an example of its use.
