Bettini, Lorenzo and De Nicola, Rocco and Loreti, Michele Software update via mobile agent based programming. In: Proceedings of the 2002 ACM symposium on Applied computing (SAC '02). ACM, pp. 32-36. (2002)Full text not available from this repository.
We describe a system that permits maintaining the software installed on several heterogeneous computers distributed over a network by taking advantage of the mobile agent paradigm. The applications are installed and updated only on the central server. When a new release of an application is installed on the server, agents are scattered along the network to update the application on the clients.To build a prototype system we use X-KLAIM, a programming language specifically designed to program distributed systems composed of several components interacting through multiple tuple spaces and mobile code.
