A computational model and system for the generation of distributed applications in a workstation environment are presented. The well-known RPC model is modified by a novel concept known as template attachment. A computation consists of a network of sequential procedures which have been encapsulated in templates. A small selection of templates is available from which a distributed application with the desired communication behavior can be rapidly built. The system generates all the required low-level code for correct synchronization, communication, and scheduling. This results in a system that is easy to use and flexible and can provide a programmer with the desired amount of control in using idle processing power over a network of workstations. The practical feasibility of the model has been demonstrated by implementing it for Unix-based workstation environments
