Abstract

Expressive and efficient mobile code languages are essential for the rapid construction of mobile systems. This paper provides a qualitative and quantitative comparative evaluation of three mobile code languages: Java Voyager, JoCaml and mHaskell. The languages evaluated represent a spectrum, having different programming paradigms and supporting different classes of mobility. The comparison is based on a non-trivial meeting scheduler case study that uses two common patterns of mobile computation: distributed information retrieval and multicast. Illustrated by the meeting scheduler, the languages are compared for programming model, security, language interoperability and performance on networks of 2, 4, 6 and 8 locations.
