Reactivity on the Web is an emerging research issue covering: updating data on the Web, exchanging information about events (such as executed updates) between Web sites, and reacting to combinations of such events. Reactivity plays an important role for upcoming Web systems such as online marketplaces, adaptive Web and Semantic Web systems, as well as Web services and Grids. This article introduces the paradigms upon which the high-level language XChange for programming reactive behaviour and distributed applications on the Web relies. Then, it briefly presents the main syntactical constructs of XChange and their declarative and operational semantics.
