Java for high performance and distributed computing. (Baker, Mark A.; Shafi, Aamir y Grove, Matthew) Abstract The Java language first came to public attention in 1995; very soon after it was being speculated that Java may be a good language for parallel and distributed computing. Its core features, including being objected oriented and platform independence, as well as having built-in network support and threads, has encouraged this view. Today, Java is being used in almost every type of computer-based system, ranging from sensor networks to high performance computing platforms, and from enterprise applications through to complex research-based simulations. In this paper we first explore the pros and cons of Java for High Performance and Distributed Computing. Then we outline some software that is actively being used to support high-performance and distributed applications.
