LINC: A Compact Yet Powerful Coordination Environment

Abstract : This paper presents LINC, a coordination programming environment. It is an evolution of earlier middlewares (the Coordination Language Facility (CLF) and Stitch). The aim is to provide a more flexible and expressive language correcting several of their limitations and an improved run-time environment. LINC provides a compact yet powerful coordination language and an optimised run-time which executes rules. This paper describes the intrinsic properties brought by the LINC environment and how it helps the coordination aspects in a distributed system. This paper also emphasises on the reflexivity of LINC and its usage at system level. Finally, it illustrates through several case studies, how LINC can manage a wide range of application domains.
