Abstract:
This article illustrates how to easily address scalability issues within distributed applications built on top of the
Coordination Language Facility (CLF) middleware. CLF provides a distributed object computing framework with
high expressiveness, flexibility and dynamicity. Our solutions rely on a core set of techniques such as
replication, caching and distribution. We decline them along a geographical, a numerical, and an administrative
dimension. We illustrate our approach with examples taken from Yaka, an application in the field of knowledge
management and document awareness. In the context of this application we show in detail how the
coordination model of the CLF and its associated scripting language enable straightforward solutions to various
scalability issues.
