Fault Tolerant TupleSpace?

Can a TupleSpace be mirrored to a secondary server in way that the
clients accessing it can fail over to it in the event of a server
failure?

I understand that a TupleSpace can provide fault tolerance, I just can’t
find any documentation to that fact in the Ruby implementation.

Thanks!

Here’s a start:

This just creates a slave, you’d have to add the switching logic and
re-master stuff yourself. I don’t know what’ll happen if you add
tuples with expiry times or renewers, buyer beware.

Thanks Eric! I’ll have a look-see. Hopefully I’m not getting in over my
head. :wink:
