Linda is a coordination language capable of solving issues in distributed computing environments that relate to process synchronization, communication and creation. The expressiveness of Linda in distributed systems is such that researchers are proposing novel applications using Linda as a primary means of coordination. The examples range from peer-to-peer to groupware computing, from simple chat applications to control systems. Surprisingly, Linda has not been used in the field of distributed databases, although Linda can be helpful in solving coordination issues in a distributed database system. In this paper, we look at a possibility of using Linda in the context of distributed databases.
