Abstract
Object replication is one of the most useful tech­
niques in distributed computing because it facilitates
fault­tolerance and increases the availability of dis­
tributed services. Consistent replication is the focus
of traditional distributed database applications as well
as of Computer Supported Cooperative Work applica­
tions. Other applications that can take advantage of
consistent object replication are those operating in a
mobile environment.
However, in asynchronous environments prone to
machines and communication link failures, discon­
nected replicas may find themselves with different
states. The State Transfer problem is to bring such
replicas to a consistent state when they re­connect
again. Our work presents an efficient State Transfer
layer that may serve as a building block in consistent
