Executive Summary

The fundamental ideas of distributed objects have changed little in the last 20 years. Existing languages are retrofitted with transparent distribution mechanisms based on proxies. Experiments with mobile code demonstrate its power but have little impact on practice. The problems with transparency and mobile code have been well known since at least 1994. But in the absence of any fundamental new ideas, the same problematic approaches are used, for example in the design of Java RMI.
