Abstract:
Concurrent object-oriented programming systems require support for concurrency control, to enforce consistent commitment of changes and to support program-initiated rollback after application-specific failures. We have explored three different concurrency control models -- atomic blocks, serializable transactions, and commit-serializable transactions -- as part of the MELD programming language. We present our designs, discuss certain programming problems and implementation issues, and compare our work on MELD to other concurrent object-based systems.
