Abstract: Object-oriented programming, which treats objects as processes in execution, has shown significant effectiveness in distributed systems. This effectiveness is greatly influenced by how objects are assigned to nodes. This paper presents a colored generalized stochastic Petri net (CGSPN) model to analyze the behavior of object invocations when as assignment strategy is applied. The effectiveness of an object is also analyzed by the CGSPN model. Moreover, this analysis provides guidelines to develop an efficient object assignment strategy.
Keywords: assignment strategy, colored Petri nets, distributed systems, object-oriented programming, stochastic Petri nets.
