A system called Agora was designed and implemented that supports the development of multilanguage parallel applications for heterogeneous machines. Agora hinges on two ideas: the first one is that shared memory can be a suitable abstraction to program concurrent, multilanguage modules running on heterogeneous machines. The second idea is that a shared memory abstraction can be efficiently suppo
