AbstractA method and system for executing code remotely is provided. In a preferred embodiment, a client program executes on a client node and communicates with a network. The executing client program then requests the execution of server code corresponding to an object instance or object class instance with which the client program desires to communicate. In response to the client program request, the computer system determines a location where the server code will be executed. This determination is made using a set of rules that arbitrate between location contexts specified by the corresponding server program and a location context requested by the client program. Once the appropriate location is determined, the client program forwards its request to the appropriate network node, which requests execution of the requested server code.
