Abstract : ABS is an object-oriented modeling language that is based on a concurrent object group model, derived itself from the active object model. Its goal is to describe distributed and concurrent applications in order to verify their properties and make them safer. Thanks to the ABS Tool Suite, ABS programs can be translated into the Java programming language (among others), and executed in the JVM. This paper presents a new ABS backend that translates ABS programs into ProActive programs. ProActive is a well known active object Java library that provides support for distribution of applications across clusters or grids. The benefit of this work is to be able to easily distribute ABS programs, so that ABS models can also be experimented in a large scale setting. Our contribution includes the ProActive backend itself, the complete description of our translation strategy, and a realistic experiment that shows the benefits of the ProActive backend.
