JavaSpaces™ Principles, Patterns, and Practice

The script to run the SleepWorker should look something like this: Jini Infrastructure Jini comes with several standard infrastructure components out of the box. The JavaSpaces model involves persistent object exchange “areas” in which remote processes can coordinate their actions and exchange data.

This book introduces the JavaSpaces architecture, provides a definitive and comprehensive description of the model, and demonstrates how to use it to develop distributed computing applications. The combination of Jini and JavaSpaces addresses a wide range of distributed systems requirements, from simple caching through to full-blown service oriented architecture SOA.

Jini provides both an infrastructure and a programming model. For those familiar with Linda, an entry differs from a Linda tuple in that it is strongly typed and may contain behavior methods in addition to data attributes.

In this case I want to retrieve any result javaspaves with the current master, so I only specify the masterID. This prevents resource accretion, a common problem in distributed systems. Therefore, we asked ourselves, why should we have get and set methods whose behavior is exactly like this other language construct called a field? Book Description “Ever since I first saw David Gelernter’s Linda programming language almost twenty rutorial ago, I felt that the basic ideas of Linda could be used to make an important advance in the ease of distributed and parallel programming.


I highly recommend it to students, programmers, and the technically curious.

Example The purpose of this example is to be a walking skeleton of a Jini system. Clients to a JavaSpace can use it to share information, including divisions of a problem that can be solved in a distributed and parallel fashion.

Jini is a distributed computing technology developed by Sun Microsystems. When a task is found, the worker removes it from the space, sleeps for the specified duration, and writes a corresponding SleepResult back to the space.

Service implementations can be moved without impacting clients. The code to take results from the space is: Multiple different implementations can run simultaneously. JavaSpaces ignores the fields left null.

Javasaces JavaBeans, all Entry implementations must provide a public constructor that takes no arguments. In the interests of simplicity, the example below uses leases that last “forever.

With these core Jini services running, you can try out the example. Jiniology, a series of articles on Jini and JavaSpaces hosted by Artima. These problems are usually not IO-intensive and are easily subdivided and parametrized. JavaSpaces lends itself to blackboard-style processing, in which specialized processes take items from the shared board, perform their function, and then return results to the shared memory space.


Before SleepMaster can write to a JavaSpace, it needs a reference to one. In this version of the pattern, tasks either expose an execute method or include a strategy to configure the generic worker. The Entry implementation acts as an envelope or wrapper around the “real” payload, which may be any serializable Java object. Jini technology provides a flexible infrastructure for delivering services in a network and for creating spontaneous interactions between clients that use these services regardless of their hardware or software implementations.

The only public data members exposed are those required for the template-based matching of the JavaSpaces API.

Get unlimited access to videos, live online training, learning paths, books, tutorials, and more. One aspect that is not obvious is that, like all Jini resources, transactions javaspace leased. In this case it doesn’t. In a production environment, the timeout period specified javaxpaces the last parameter would be much shorter. Keith Edward’s excellent discussion of Jini codebase issues. Unlike JavaBeans, all of the data members of an Entry must be public.

This pattern is quite simple:
