Orphan Elimination in Distributed Object-Oriented Systems

Ezzat, Ahmed K.



Abstract: The orphan detection and elimination issue has been addressed extensively in the distributed transaction management context and more recently in the distributed systems context within the the RPC framework. An orphan in a distributed object-oriented applications environment is an object which is created by an application and continues to exist beyond the application's lifetime. This paper addresses orphan detection and elimination for applications in a distributed object-oriented system. We apply our model for a distributed Unix/C++ environment, but the model is general and can be applied to other distributed object-oriented systems.
