  abstract= "Object Oriented languages have increased in popularity
     over the last two decades. The OO paradigm claims to model
     the way objects interact in the real world. All objects in
     the OO model are passive and all methods are executed
     synchronously in the thread of the caller. Active objects
     execute their methods in their own threads. The active
     object queues method invocations and executes them one at a
     time. Method invocations do not overlap, thus the object
     cannot be put into or seen to be in an inconsistent state.
     We propose an active object system implemented by
     extending the Java language with four new keywords:
     \textlesscode\textgreateractive\textless/code\textgreater, \textlesscode\textgreaterasync\textless/code\textgreater,
     \textlesscode\textgreateron\textless/code\textgreater and
     \textlesscode\textgreaterwaitfor\textless/code\textgreater. We
     have modified Sun's open-source compiler to accept the new
     keywords and to translate them to regular Java code
     during desugaring phase. We achieve this through the use of
     RMI, which as a side effect, allows us to utilize a cluster
     of work stations to perform distributed computing"
