Implementing Database Replication based on Group Communication.
Many proposals have been made to exploit the rich semantics of group
communication systems to support database replication. So far, these
proposals have either used simulation studies or simple prototype
implementations. This paper analyzes what is still missing and
what has to be addressed -- both from a theoretical and a practical
perspective -- in order to build "real" systems.
