Coordination languages have classically been divided into control-based coordination languages, on the one hand, and data-based coordination languages, on the other hand. The great majority of work on coordination addresses the one family or the another but rarely connects the two. In the honor of the retirement of a leading expert of control-based coordination languages, the authors, who devoted many research efforts on data-based coordination languages, aim at addressing the connection between the two families of coordination languages. To that end, a Reo-like dialect, named ReoD, is first presented. Variants of a Linda-like language, named BachT, VBachT and MRT, are then described and subsequently used to translate and simulate the ReoD language.
