: Distributed and Shared Objects, Load
Balancing, Heterogeneous Environments.
This paper presents the development of an environment to
support the parallel and distributed programming. The
environment enables computers to share two fundamental
resources: memory and processor. The Internet/Intranet is
seen as a Pool of available machines for sharing. The
main entities in this environment are passive and active
objects. The passive objects are lists, stacks and queues.
While the active objects are processes. Also, it was
developed mechanisms of load balancing, migration and
fault tolerance. With Distributed Shared Objects in
ESOW (Environment of Shared Objects for Web) is
possible to simulate DSM (Distributed Shared Memory).
These characteristics make possible to use of our
environment for metacomputing. Several tests have been
performed and are included in this paper in order to
demonstrate ESOW .
