Abstract—A new Java tool called Mobile Object for use in distributed computing is to be presented in this paper. This tool is more user friendly and powerful than other similar tools like RMI and mobile agents. It uses Java dynamic proxy to forward method calls to remote objects. The tool allows the user to deploy a distributed computing program from a single computer. The code will migrate to other computers accordingly and therefore the deployment of a distributed system can be done from one single computer.
Index Terms—Distributed computing, RMI, mobile agents.
