We started by describing an experiment which mixed Linda and time-warp to construct an implementation of time-warp on top of Linda. As a result of this experience and coupled with the development of an implementation of the concurrent object oriented language EuLisp we realised that the numerous concurrency abstractions could be elegantly packaged using classes and specialization to reflect the different interaction protocols whilst still permitting different abstractions to cooperate. Hence we conclude that object oriented techniques are valuable as a means of expressing and controlling concurrency and that there is more to concurrent object-oriented programming than simply viewing objects as units of concurrency. To exercise this new implementation a persistent concurrent OO simulation of a railway network has been developed.
