Simplifying Domain Modeling and Memory Management in User-Mode Filesystems with the NOFS FrameworkProc. 2010 IEEE Intl. Conf. on Electro/Information Technology

AbstractTransparent access to remote data sets and data arising from web services is a non-trivial challenge to application developers. This early stage work addresses this challenge with NOFS, an object-oriented framework for creating filesystems to support domain specific functionality. While an early stage work, we present a solution to solve the access problem. Our solution greatly simplifies the task of filesystems development by providing the glue code needed between a domain model and the filesystem contract. We demonstrate support for domain models that are larger than physical memory and demonstrate how the concerns of caching can be removed from user-mode filesystem implementations. Future work will addresses more robust solutions to caching and other performance strategies.
