A multi-cast framework, based on polymorphism similar to that of object-oriented languages, is proposed as an efficient and flexible publish/subscribe solution to the problems of increasing scale. Experience with a prototype of the framework is described. Future directions of this work are enumerated. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
