    The Java™ language specification requires that all array references be checked for validity. If a reference is invalid, an exception must be thrown. Furthermore, the environment at the time of the exception must be preserved and made available to whatever code handles the exception. Performing the checks at run time incurs a large penalty in execution time. In this paper we describe a colle... View full abstract»

    With the creation of computer networks in the 1970s came the birth of distributed network applications. Since then, there have been many applications that spanned multiple machines, but in the last 20 years no one created a serviceable network middleware package for developing highly effective distributed applications, that is, until now. This paper describes the design and architecture of T Space... View full abstract»
