Chapter 8

Distribution Architecture

Abstract

The distribution architecture focuses on how objects are allocated to different processors and the means by which they collaborate. These means include not only the underlying communications protocols but also the policies and patterns that govern their use. This chapter discusses the definition of the distribution architecture and some distribution design patterns that are useful in real-time and embedded systems. Exercises are provided for modeling the distribution architecture for the Roadrunner Traffic Light Control System and the Coyote Unmanned Air Vehicle.
