Abstract

This report presents the design and implementation of a middleware for building large-scale, dynamic, and self-organizing distributed applications for the Internet. First, we identify the challenges that are faced when building this type of applications and the constraints imposed on the middleware that is to support them. We derive a set of essential services that are to be provided by our middleware in order to facilitate the development of distributed applications. These services include scalable communication, failure detection, name-based overlay routing, group communication and a distributed hash table abstraction. We present the event-based component-oriented architecture of the system, discussing the design choices that we made in order to meet the aforementioned challenges and constraints while providing the essential services for distributed applications. We describe in detail the event scheduling mechanism, the communication and failure detection, as well as the interface to applications and other miscellaneous services.
