Conversational Group Service

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Alexander RomanovskyORCiD



The purpose of this paper is to propose a way of tolerating software (design) faults in distributed systems relying on the well-known conversation (atomic action) approach. To do this, we shall consider differences between two programming paradigms: group communication and conversations, and discuss how a group communication service can be used to provide design fault tolerance by conversations. The main characteristics and peculiarities of this new conversational group service are described.
