    Abstract

    A major challenge for distributed applications working in mobile contexts is to provide application developers with a method of building stable systems whose elements may change across time. We introduce the concept of As Strong As Possible mobility that uses a combination of data space management and thread state capture so that objects and threads can migrate in a manner that has not been properly explored yet. The ultimate goal is to provide a mechanism for mobility where an object will be migrated using strong mobility techniques where possible and using rebinding mechanisms when it is not advantageous to simply ’grab’ a thread’s state.
