Comet is a programming language that uses the Comet Visiting Object Pattern. It's primarily used for developing distributed systems. Comet's pattern lets objects act as if they are local to their environment, even though they might be located on other machines in a networked configuration. This allows the implementation of systems with transparent communication between objects over different processes and locations. The language focuses on simplifying development and improving maintainability by abstracting network details from the programmer’s view while providing high-level constructs for remote method invocation and object management in a distributed setting.
