Preventing Recursion Deadlock in Concurrent Object-Oriented Systems
MASSACHUSETTS INST OF TECH CAMBRIDGE LAB FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper presents solutions to the problem of deadlock due to recursion in concurrent object-oriented programming languages. Two language- independent, system-level mechanisms for solving this problem are proposed a novel technique using multi-ported objects, and a named-threads scheme that borrows from previous work in distributed computing. We compare the solutions and present an analysis of their relative merits.
