View­oriented group communication systems (GCSs) are powerful tools for building
distributed applications. Over the past fifteen years, group communication researchers
developed a multitude of group communication semantics and implementations. Today,
researchers commonly design their group communication algorithms on top of simple
existing services such as a network membership service or a reliable FIFO multicast
framework. A natural extension of this idea is to implement one set of group
communication semantics using another. This approach is not usually utilized due to the
