by Václav Dvořák, Lubomír Markovič, December 2000, 20 pages.

FIMU-RS-2000-11. Available as Postscript, PDF.


The intent of this article is to give an overview of possibilities for building distributed/parallel applications in the JAVA language and to judge the suitability of some of them for high performance computing. In the first part different approaches and libraries are presented and in the second part of this article, RMI, HORB and CORBA libraries are compared to direct communication over sockets. Gauss-Jordan algorithm for computation a system of linear equations was used to test these libraries.
