Originally implemented to support wireless sensor networks, the lightweight mobile code daemons described in this article now work on wired networks as well. The authors have implemented them to run on multiple operating systems and architectures. The daemons use a peer-to-peer indexing scheme to find mobile code packages as needed. Calls to the daemons are automatically dereferenced to find the proper package for a node's OS and hardware.
