Title
(EN) PROGRAM CONTEXT MIGRATION
Abstract
(EN)

A collection of code fragments loaded in an interactive development platform for running on a first processor can be received. A candidate fragment in the collection of code fragments can be determined for migration to a second processor based on characterizing the collection of code fragments. Based on a location of the candidate fragment in the collection of code fragments, a spot can be identified in the collection of code fragments to inject a code for saving program context. The code for saving program context can be injected in the identified spot. Responsive to the code for saving program context having run on the first processor and based on a criterion, the program context can be migrated to the second processor.
