This paper presents the design and implementation issues for the use of DSM techniques to allow shared access to objects in an object-oriented distributed environment. J-DSM supports sharing of Java objects, thus allowing a finer control over the granularity of sharing. J-DSM elaborates on two main classes of shared objects, mobile and stationary, which can be accessed through DSM and RMI mechanisms, respectively. Shared objects are uniquely named and manipulated through the J-DSM interface.
