Ephemeral Java Source Code

Conference or Workshop Paper
IEEE Workshop on Future Trends in Distributed Computing Systems, Cape Town

In an object oriented, distributed environment, program maintenance, which has never been the most predictable task, becomes even more uncertain. Java's dynamic loading mechanism was developed to tackle some of the uncertainties. In doing so, it shifts the focus from the state of the sources to that of the binaries. This paper discusses some of the implications of that move.
