The join-calculus is an experimental language based on the
homonymous process calculus. It provides a simple support for
The join-calculus programming model features concurrent processes
running on several machines, static type-checking, global lexical
scope, transparent remote communication, agent-based mobility, and
We have developped two
implementations of the Join-Calculus in the Objective-CAML
- The join calculus language: This system contains a compiler and an
interpreter written in Objective-CAML. The language is the
join-calculus, with basic types, most Objective-CAML libraries as
primitives (even graphical ones), and a simple interface to
incorporate any other Objective-CAML module.
- The Join-Objective-Caml system: This system is based on the
standard Objective-CAML distribution, completed with a "join-calculus"
library. The language is Objective-CAML syntactically extended with
join-calculus definitions and locations. The system can not only run
any Objective-Caml program (after recompilation), but integrate all
powerful join-calculus constructs (concurrency, synchronization,
distribution and mobiles agents).
