Object replication in GemStone is something that most GemStone projects struggle with. This framework allows you to side-step the standard replication policies to use a simple and efficient replication of only the attributes you want, to the replication depth that is desired. It reduces load on GBS caches and on GS in general while providing immediate query results for display. It can avoid many class connector issues. Queries operate using parallel processing between Cincom® VisualWorks® client and gem. Queries can be run on any collection in GemStone. This framework is intended for VisualWorks and GemStone/S. It is as meaningful to GS/S as the introduction of a View had been to a Table.
