Abstract

A mechanism for inter-object communication between remote objects using publish/subscribe messaging and its concepts of publisher, subscribers and topic hierarchies. Objects can be defined in any object-oriented languages like Java, .Net and C++. Communicating objects can exist in the same execution environment, different execution environments on the same machine as well as different execution environments on different machines. Across these , the method allows objects to communicate in a location transparent manner. A publish/subscribe topic based hierarchy is proposed for object addressing and inter-object communication.
