Abstract

This invention presents a scheme that allows migrating an object in a multi-threaded environment without requiring that all accesses to the object be synchronized. Instead, provided is a means of determining whether or not another thread is using an object which we want to migrate, only incurring a significant overhead for those objects we wish to migrate.
