The idea is to separate application programs from the various aspects of concurrency, distribution and its communication infrastructure. Automatic distribution of computationally intensive object oriented programs is one of the active research areas. In this paper, a method for distributing application programs over a network is presented. We use a genetic clustering algorithm to detect mostly connected classes, in a class dependency graph. Each cluster may be deployed in a station across a network and communicate with the other stations via CORBA middleware. Something that distinguishes our environment from the existing ones is the support for automatic exploitation of inherent concurrency in inter-object communications and for non-blocking interactions between objects in different clusters over CORBA event channels.
