A TUPLE SPACE WEB SERVICE FOR DISTRIBUTED PROGRAMMING - Simplifying Distributed Web Services Applications

George C. Wells, Barbara Mueller, Loïc Schulé

Abstract

This paper describes a new tuple space web service for coordination and communication in distributed web applications. This web service is based on the Linda programming model. Linda is a coordination language for parallel and distributed processing, providing a communication mechanism based on a logically shared memory space. The original Linda model has been extended through the provision of a programmable mechanism, providing additional flexibility and improved performance. The implementation of the web service is discussed, together with the details of the programmable matching mechanism. Some results from the implementation of a location-based mobile application, using the tuple space web service are presented, demonstrating the benefits of our system.
