Mobile agents and mobile computing have grown in importance recently. The Supervisor-Worker pattern is an architectural pattern that helps architects solving the problem of protecting the mobile agent from leakage and tampering. The fundamental Master-Slave Pattern is widespread and heavily used in traditional applications. The Supervisor-Worker pattern inherits many of the Master-Slave pattern’s benefits. It also solves several of the security issues of mobile agents.
