Abstract

Abstract We propose a light weight kernel server for dynamic and transparent configuration of services and interaction mechanisms, allowing a run-time negotiation of a desired service functionality, of service interfaces, and of the degree of the fault-tolerance provided. The kernel server provides abstractions concerning: (1) the interprocess communication, (2) the coordination of process interaction and the service management and (3) the fault-tolerance. Furthermore, we offer not only useful abstractions, but also tools for the user to define new abstractions. To allow this we introduce a simple basic communication framework, the Active Virtual Port, and means for the developer to implement and attach new abstractions (port threads), as well as for the user to use them by means of port capabilities.
