  abstract = {We describe a system that permits maintaining the software installed on several
      heterogeneous computers distributed over a network by taking advantage of the
      mobile agent paradigm. The applications are installed and updated only on the
      central server. When a new release of an application is installed on the server,
      agents are scattered along the network to update the application on the
      To build a prototype system we use X-Klaim, a programming language specifically
      designed to program distributed systems composed of several components
      interacting through multiple tuple spaces and mobile code.},
