JMPF: A Message Passing Framework for Cluster Computing in Java
As we enter 21st century, our dependency on the Parallel/Distributed computing
to solve large scientific problems is going to increase each day. This
observation has inspired many researchers to invest their efforts into the
development of efficient platform independent Message Passing Interface.
JMPF (A Message Passing Framework for Cluster Computing in Java) is one
alternative interface developed in Java. Using JMPF, concurrent programmers
can easily design and develop application programs for cluster computing.
In this paper, we describe the need of JMPF and JMPF components, architecture,
implementation, API (Application Programmer's Interface), interaction between
its components, and sample applications.
