Abstract
The Java Environment for Distributed Invocation (JEDI)
is efficient, dynamic, and easier to use than alternative
communication systems for distributed Java objects.
Existing state-of-the-art mechanisms for remote method
calls on Java objects, such as RMI, require users to
perform a complicated series of steps. Furthermore, the
compiled static interfaces these systems use limit their
functionality. This paper presents the design and
implementation of JEDI's simpler approach utilizing
dynamic proxies. We discuss a means of integrating
JEDI with a publicly available CORBA ORB, followed by
the tests used to ensure the robustness of the JEDI system.
Comparing this system's performance with that of other
communication facilities such as UDP, TCP, and RMI
demonstrates the efficiency of JEDI. A calendar program
