MiKO---Mikado Koncurrent Objects

Abstract

The motivation for the Mikado migration model is to provide programming constructs for controlling code mobility that are as independent as possible from the particular programming language used to program the code. The main idea is to regard a domain (or site, or locality), where mobile code may enter or exit, as a membrane enclosing running processes, and offering services that have to be called for entering or exiting the domain. MiKO---Mikado Koncurrent Objects is a particular instance of this model, where the membrane is explicitly split in two parts: the methods defining the interface, and a process part describing the data for, and the behavior of, the interface. The talk presents the syntax, operational semantics, and type system of MiKO, together with an example. It concludes by briefly mentioning the implementation of a language based on the calculus.
