We disscus about Dermi: a new distributed hash table-based middleware framework. Decentralized event remote method invocation (Dermi) is a peer-to-peer (P2P), decentralized event-based object middleware framework built on top of a structured overlay network. Using an event-notification service as the principal building block, Dermi makes three innovative contributions: P2P call abstractions, distributed interception, and a decentralized object-location service. We describe how to use these three pillars to build a wide variety of global-scale distributed applications and argue that Dermi is a solid foundational technology for future wide-area distributed component infrastructures.
