Kaiser, Gail E.; Cycowicz, Yael J.; Hseush, Wenwey; Micallef, Josephine

This technical report consists of three papers from the INTERCOMS project. A Network Architecture for Reliable Distributed Computing introduces the view section model, a network layer for exception handling in response to disruptions in communication channels due to failures of network links or nodes. Remote Exception Handling discusses for a network layer for exception handling among cooperating application processes. Demand-Driven Parameter Passing in Remote Procedure Call describes how remote exception handling solves the problem of passing referential data types (pointers) as parameters to remote procedures.
