USENIX Technical Program - Abstract - 7th Tcl/Tk Conference - February 2000
AGNI: A Multi-threaded Middleware for Distributed Scripting
M.Ranganathan, Marc Bednarek, Fernand Pors and Doug Montgomery Internetworking Technologies Group National Institute of Standards and Technology
We present the design of a AGNI - a Tcl 8.1 based Middleware for
building reactive, extensible, reconfigurable distributed systems,
based upon an abstraction we call Mobile Streams. Using our
system, a distributed, event-driven application can be scripted from a
single point of control and dynamically extended and re-configured
while it is in execution. Our system is suitable for building a wide
variety of applications; for example, distributed test, conferencing
and control-oriented applications. We illustrate the use of our system
by presenting example applications.
