Abstract

In this paper, we develop an object-orientated model for structuring distributed real-time applications. Atomic actions (atomic transactions) and exception handling techniques are used to introduce fault tolerance. Additional techniques are then developed to permit application and device specific commit and abort processing. Objects can be replicated to increase their availability. We examine the reasons why some of the existing real-time object models are not suitable for active replication and why the model proposed here represents an improvement. Realistic examples are used to illustrate the practical utility of our approach.
