    The authors have developed a new approach to database interoperability using the sketch data model. That technique has now been used in a number of applications, but an important question remains: What are the algorithms that support updates in the sketch data model? The question has significant content since the sketch data model uses EA-sketches to specify data structures, and these include cons... View full abstract»

    In many CSCW systems, mobile agents are used to do some important work. However, mobile agents add a notable amount of complexity to all common problems of distributed systems, and cause a couple of new ones, such as location management, frequent disconnection and migration, etc. In this article, we focus on a technique for strong migration of mobile agents. Capturing and re-establishing the agent... View full abstract»

    The era where business rules are buried in Cobol code is coming to an end, and users themselves may seek to dynamically change their business rules. Customers require systems that more easily adapt to changing business needs, meet their unique requirements, and scale to large and small installations. On the other hand, the same technique is adequate for the slightly different purpose of producing ... View full abstract»
