Sharing Objects in a Distributed System


This paper presents a design for the use of DSM techniques and system-supported synchronisation to support shared access to persistent objects in a distributed environment. We adopt a hybrid approach where the system granularity is sometimes pages and sometimes objects. We are interested in providing shared access to small (i.e.,less than a page) objects in a general purpose, language-independent environment, and supporting both DSM and RPC object access mechanisms.
