Abstract

Klaim is a coordination language specifically designed to model and program distributed systems consisting of mobile components interacting through multiple distributed tuple spaces. The Klaim’s theoretical foundations provided a solid ground for the implementation of the Klaim’s programming model. To practically program Klaim-based applications, the X-Klaim programming language has been proposed. It extends Klaim with enriched primitives and standard control flow constructs, and is compiled in Java to be executed. However, due to the limits of X-Klaim in terms of usability and the aging of the technology at the basis of its compiler, X-Klaim has been progressively neglected. Motivated by the success that Klaim has gained, the popularity that still has in teaching distributed computing, and its possible future exploitations in the development of modern ICT systems, in this paper we propose a renewed and enhanced version of X-Klaim. The new implementation, coming together with an Eclipse-based IDE tooling, relies on recent powerful frameworks for the development of programming languages.
