I think this article overlaps with Active objects.

An "Active object" is an object that has interface and operations on different threads.The "Active objects" article seems to be a normal object that is waiting on service response--Tim 04:40, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
As I understand it, an active object has to do with multithreading, whereas active objects is a variant of the lockstep protocol in which packets from one client to another are wrapped in such a way that neither of them can read it until they've both negotiated their intentions. See Algorithms and Networking for Computer Games (Jouni Smed and Harri Hakonen) p.217-220 for more detailed information. — Stimpy 16:52, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
