Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 133

Description:
The last five years have seen the rapid rise in popularity of what we term internet distributed applications (IDAs). These are internet applications with which many users interact simultaneously. IDAs range from P2P file-sharing applications, to collaborative distributed computing projects, to massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs). Currently, there is no framework that combines IDAs collectively within a single context. We provide a basis for such a framework here.
