Abstract

In the context of mobile networks, distributed garbage collection (DGC) must deal with volatile connections which may break remote references unexpectedly for an undetermined amount of time. This poster discusses the new challenges that mobile networks pose to DGC and describes a new approach called semi-automatic garbage collection to cope with them. The rationale behind semi-automatic garbage collection is that automatic transparent DGC is irreconcilable with such highly partial disconnected network topology. We propose that the responsibility of DGC is shared among collector and developer in such a way that the collector is steered by the developer who has semantic knowledge of the object graph.
