GLOBDATA: An efficient software tool for global data access

by admin last modified 2007-07-11 11:52 AM

The overall objective of the project is to design an efficient software development tool and support system to provide application developers with a global view of an object database repository with transactional access to geographically distributed persistent objects independent of their location.

The aim is to create a set of mechanisms to handle replica consistency maintenance, data distribution, and transaction commitment and synchronization. These mechanisms are provided in a coherent tool called COPLA.

Approach and Methods

COPLA makes use of standard proposals for distributed application creation like those on OMG's CORBA. At the level of communication support, COPLA will rely on a configurable group communication tool.

Progress and Results

The project is finished.
