TITLE
  Ensemble 
SUBTITLE
  A group communication toolkit. 
DESCRIPTION
  Ensemble is a toolkit for building reliable distributed
applications. It has been available for free public release
for over 3 years now and has been used in a number of
commercial and research systems. Ensemble provides a
library of protocols that can be used for quickly building
complex distributed applications. An application registers
10 or so event handlers with Ensemble, and then the
Ensemble protocols handle the details of reliably
sending and receiving messages, transferring state,
implementing security, detecting failures, and managing
reconfigurations in the system.

Ocaml programmers may also find some of the general purpose
modules, such as a priority queue implementation, useful.
