This paper was presented at the Coordination Models and Languages, held on June 19-21, 2017, in Neuchatel, Switzerland.
During the last decades a lot of coordination models and languages have been proposed in the literature. These approaches have proven that they can greatly improve the development of distributed applications that are now common. However, to be used by many developers, there is still a gap regarding the available tools.
This paper details a set of tools that have been built to develop applications in LINC, a coordination environment rooted in Linda tuple spaces and Gamma chemical machine approaches. These tools allow developers to design better coordination rules, to monitor and update a running distributed application. The tools proposed here include design and debugging tools.
