We specify an abstract model for dynamic distributed control systems in which the component objects make local decisions based on system‐wide constraints and approximate global state. We focus on the issue of distributed resource management, exploring a solution that is both compositional and scalable because it builds global events into the Java infrastructure by exploiting its multicast facilities.
