Distributed computing has lagged behind the productivity revolution that has transformed the desktop in recent years. Programmers still generally treat the Web as a separate technology space and develop network applications using low-level message-passing primitives or unreliable Web services method invocations. Live distributed objects are designed to offer developers a scalable multicast infrastructure that's tightly integrated with a runtime environment.
