Evaluating distributed functional languages for telecommunications software
The distributed telecommunications sector not only requires minimal time to market, but also software that is reliable, available, maintainable and scalable. High level programming languages have the potential to reduce development time and improve maintainability due to their compact code size. Moreover reliability is improved by safe type systems and relatively easy verification. This paper outlines plans and initial results from a joint project between Motorola and Heriot-Watt University that aims to evaluate the suitability of distributed functional languages for constructing telecommunications software. The evaluation will use the Erlang and Glasgow distributed Haskell(GdH) languages, and be based on the construction of several typical applications. The evaluation will focus on reliability issues like ease of verification, availability issues like fault-tolerance or resilience, as well as whether the languages deliver the required functionalities, like real-time capabilities.
