NotesThe advances of distributed computing demand novel programming model to support efficient software development and execution. Graphs can effectively represent the logical structures of distributed systems and applications so as to facilitate the programming of distributed applications and support the efficient mapping of programs to hardware architecture. This chapter presents a Graph-Oriented Programming (GOP) model that provides flexible graph constructs and graph-oriented programming primitives to build a programming paradigm based on graph topology and provide a formal specification of software architecture for distributed programs. The GOP model creates an abstract programming framework and supports dynamic reconfiguration of a distributed computing system to implement adaptive computation and fault-tolerance. Various computing environments have been developed based on GOP such as cluster computing, web service, and component-based computation.
