A FRAMEWORK FOR DISTRIBUTED OBJECTS IN PEER-TO-PEER COOPERATION ENVIRONMENTS

Bernd Eßmann, Thorsten Hampel

Abstract

Mobile forms of cooperative knowledge organization need system architectures that also allow spontaneous (ad hoc) networking and collaboration structures. An essential requirement here, besides establishing the peer-to-peer network, is the design of suitable framework architectures for object distribution. This article presents our approach to developing a basic architecture for distributed systems that support cooperation. This also involves creating interfaces to existing classical CSCW architectures and systems. The novel element of our approach, which is based on a JXTA network, is its use of JXTA services to distribute objects among peers, thus achieving the desired object distribution.
