NetApp Wrappers :

Higher level construction of distributed applications using the cam.netapp package.

Abstract : This report describes a technique that enables one to create a distributed version of an application that is originally composed of classes interacting through standard method calls. The technique involves the construction and use of auxiliary or ``wrapper" classes. A utility program for automatically generating the wrapper classes is described. The cam.netapp package is used to provide the communications infrastructure. Extensions of the technique can be made to other communications infrastructures, e.g. that provided by the Java RMI package.

These software components were developed in conjunction with the research supported by Air Force Office of Scientific Research Grant F49620-96-I-0327 and National Science Foundation/ARPA Grant NSF-DMS-961584
