Abstract : Cronus is a distributed computing environment used to build and operate distributed applications. The distributed DBMS project has two main activities. The purpose of the Database Integration activity is to integrate a commercial, off-the-shelf database management system (DBMS) into Cronus, thereby making it available to any application using Cronus. The purpose of the Distributed DBMS activity is to conduct research into methods of infusing distributed database technology into Cronus. This report discusses the results of all work conducted under these activities. Keywords: Query processing; Integrated systems; Distributed operating systems.
