XVSM tutorial and application scenarios


Diploma Thesis, TU-Vienna, 2008


XVSM (eXtensible Virtual Shared Memory) is middleware to let applications write data to a shared memory that can be read by other applications. The data is distributed over a set of peers, which can read, write, take and delete it, independent on which peer the data is really stored. If one peer fails, the data is not lost, as it is available also on other peers.


This master thesis should provide the necessary information to learn and understand the features and possibility of space-based computing by means of XVSM and its Java implementation, called MozartSpaces. It was shown to be usable for this task by handing it to about 80 students and incorporate their feedback to the work.


The application scenario document should give application designers an insight into the possibilities they have when using XVSM. The purpose of this master thesis is not to give a complete documentation of the current state of XVSM, but to arouse interesting in the reader to use XVSM and also to give him/her a base knowledge of its features, possibilities and its usage.
