A network object is an object which may have its methods invoked
across a network. We describe extensions to DEC SRC's Modula-3
network objects system; these extensions support migration of network
objects between address spaces. Unlike other mobile object systems,
we use an existing programming language rather than inventing a new
language with object mobility primitives, and we require no changes to
the compiler, standard runtime library, or operating system. This
paper details the design, implementation and performance of our mobile
objects system and two sample applications which use the system.
