JavaSpaces is a powerful Jini service that provides a high-level tool for creating .. In a tutorial style, we cover the mechanics of creating a space-based. Selection from JavaSpaces™ Principles, Patterns, and Practice [Book] access to videos, live online training, learning paths, books, tutorials, and more. If you want more detail, I recommend Jan Newmarch’s Jini Tutorial. A JavaSpace is a Jini service that stores Java objects in memory. This makes it very useful.

One particularly nice feature of this pattern is that there is no need for complex scheduling algorithms. The JavaSpaces associative blackboard-style system provides a very simple mechanism for communication between the nodes in a distributed system. The standard Jini services are: Obviously, the more workers running, the more tasks can be processed in a particular period of time.

Clients are not impacted by, or even aware of, these operations. Automatic Performance Tuning Load balancing and other performance enhancements can be made dynamically by bringing up additional instances of services or moving instances to better hardware. Multiple different implementations can run simultaneously. Contents of a JavaSpace are associative, meaning that they are addressed searched by their contents instead of a specific location identifier.

I highly recommend it to students, programmers, and the technically curious. Why is the rule thus? Like JavaBeans, all Entry implementations must provide a public constructor that takes no arguments. But we’re not a very religious bunch. It provides a necessary ubiquitous, cross-platform framework for distributed computing, emerging as a key technology in this expanding field. Lookup Service The lookup service, named reggieis the first among equals of Jini services.


This design decision is explained by Ken Arnold in an interview with Bill Venners: Several initiatives are under way to extend the core Jini services to provide further grid-like functionality, such as scheduling and wide-area service discovery. The SleepTask and SleepResult classes are simple Entry implementations, not using the envelope-letter idiom. One aspect that is not obvious is that, like all Jini resources, transactions are leased.

This book introduces the JavaSpaces architecture, provides a definitive and comprehensive description of the model, and demonstrates how to use it to develop distributed computing applications. Using the space as a means of communication and synchronization simplifies distributed design and development as opposed to something like direct RPC [Remote Procedure Calls] or inter-node message passing.

The workers take tasks at whatever rate they are able to process them, automatically load balancing the work across available resources. Class Server The class server, a simple HTTP daemon, eliminates the coupling between clients and service implementations.

SleepWorker uses the same utilities to find transaction manager proxies as well. Running The Example Any number of masters and workers can mavaspaces started in any order. In a production environment, the timeout period specified in the last parameter would be much shorter.

In a production system, the lease specified in the final parameter would not typically be permanent. In this version of the pattern, tasks either expose an execute method or include a strategy to configure the generic worker.


Removes an entry from the space based on a template. Stay ahead with the world’s most comprehensive technology and business learning platform. These problems are usually not IO-intensive and are easily subdivided and parametrized. On their own, the concepts behind JavaSpaces are neither directly related nor limited to grid computing.

The Jini infrastructure consists of a series of core service components that enable the distribution, discovery, security, and use of a federation of services.

Jini technology provides a flexible infrastructure for delivering services in a network and for creating spontaneous interactions between clients that use these services regardless of their hardware or software implementations.

This pattern is quite simple: Deploying the Jini infrastructure is considerably less straightforward than building the example.

The nodes use simple operations to access the tuple-space blackboard. Leases on a service can be shared or exclusive.

All services in a Jini architecture register with the lookup service to make themselves available to other services. And often, people interpret those things religiously. JavaSpaces technology, a powerful Jini service from Sun Microsystems, facilitates building distributed applications for the Internet and Intranets.
