Petri Nets   Fault Tolerance   Distributed Applications   Replication And Distribution  


The design of fault-tolerant distributed applications is a complex task. In addition to application functionalities, the programmer must consider issues related to both replication adn distribution for every application component concerned with fault-tolerance.

This paper describes an approach which combines two environments (SystemSpecs and GARF) so as to: (1) graphically design applications using high level Petri nets and (2) discharge the programmer of fault-tolerance issues.
