The DEAR-COTS Replication FrameworkRef: HURRAY-TR-0113 Publication Date: 13, Jun, 2001
The DEAR-COTS (Distributed Embedded ARchitecture using Commercial Off-The-Shelf components) architecture has been proposed as an architecture for real-time and reliable Distributed Computer-Controlled Systems using COTS components. To ease the task of building reliable real-time applications on top of COTS components, a simple and transparent programming model is provided, in order that programmers abstract from the low-level implementation details of distribution and replication issues. These issues are only dealt with in a later configuration phase, where the system is configured and distributed over the DEAR-COTS nodes. This paper presents the proposed programming framework, and demonstrates how it can be used to support the transparent replication of software components.
