Context Oriented Programming (COP) allows modularization of programs according to the cross-cutting concern of contexts. Context depending features are grouped in layers which can be activated at run time by triggering the associated behavioral variations. COP extensions have been provided for different languages. However all of them enforce a thread, shared-memory based concurrency model. In this paper we discuss how the COP paradigm can be applied to message-based concurrent systems which support the agents paradigm. The discussion is supported by the case of ContextErlang, our COP-inspired contextual version of Erlang.

Abstract

Context Oriented Programming (COP) allows modularization of programs according to the cross-cutting concern of contexts. Context depending features are grouped in layers which can be activated at run time by triggering the associated behavioral variations. COP extensions have been provided for different languages. However all of them enforce a thread, shared-memory based concurrency model. In this paper we discuss how the COP paradigm can be applied to message-based concurrent systems which support the agents paradigm. The discussion is supported by the case of ContextErlang, our COP-inspired contextual version of Erlang.
