CLAM: Composition Language for Autonomous Megamodules

Sample, N. and Beringer, D. and Melloul, L. and Wiederhold, G. (1999) CLAM: Composition Language for Autonomous Megamodules. In: Third International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (Coordination 1999), April 26-28, 1999, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.




Advances in computer networks that support the invocation of remote services in heterogeneous environments enable new levels of software composition. In order to manage composition at such a high level we envision a need for purely compositional languages. We introduce the CLAM composition language, a megaprogramming language. By breaking up the traditional CALL statement the CLAM language focuses on the asynchronous composition of large-scale, autonomous modules. Furthermore the language has the capability to support various optimizations that are specific to software composition.
