In Java there is no close coupling between a thread and the objects from which they were created. The use of a container abstraction allows us to group threads and their respective objects into a single structure. A container that holds threads whose variables are all housed within the container is a perfect candidate for strong migration. To achieve this we propose a combination of three techniques to allow the containers to migrate in a manner that approaches strong mobility yet does not resort to retaining bindings to resources across distant and unreliable networks.
