The FT-CORBA specification, published by object management group, is not suited for supporting object replication in large-scale distributed systems. The inadequacy or the lack of definitions in this specification for scalability of fault-tolerant applications in those systems is the main motivation for this research. In this paper , we introduce the GroupPac, a free software that implements the FT-CORBA specification, and offers a set of extensions (including failure detection, group membership and group communication) that aims to face the scalability problem in large-scale distributed systems.
