Applications are increasingly being developed over the Internet, and Internet programming languages seek new abstractions for programming what is in effect a "Global computer." The characteristics of the evolving Internet environment have led to new ways of thinking about how to structure such global applications. The authors advocate a programming language approach to building Internet applications that reflects this change in viewpoint. This approach has a particular emphasis on the demands of fault-tolerant applications, while being centrally concerned with safeguarding security.
