With the advent of distributed processing, the computational abilities of large systems
have greatly increased. In particular, the performance of computer graphics systems can
be greatly improved by exploiting the inherent distributed characteristics of such a sys-
tem. The UGA system (a unified graphics architecture) currently being developed by
the Brown University Computer Graphics Group follows an object-based framework
and provides an integrated platform for a growing number of modeling and animation
techniques. Distribution of the system is necessary for further growth of the functional-
ity and computational ability of the UGA database. The event-based transaction system
presented here provides a highly efficient implementation for distributed processing in
computer graphic applications.
