The message-passing framework outlined in the previous chapter is sufficient for most functions within a programming environment. However. as seen there in the discussion of Hewlett-Packard’s Softbench and Sun’s Tooltalk, additional functionality is needed as programming environments become more complex and as the framework is extended to other applications. Rather than complicating the messaging implementation with this functionality, FIELD uses a separate tool, the policy service.
