Implementing Database Replication based on Group Communication.

Bettina Kemme
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.
