SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


JavaParty is an extension of Java with some important new features.

  • Transparent Remote Objects. Although RMI seems to offer this, you really have to re-work your multi-threaded Java program significantly before you can exploit the combined computing power of all your workstations with RMI. JavaParty programs are just a tiny step away from regular Java.
  • Object Mobility. JavaParty objects are free to move from one node of the network to another. Object migration results in locality of access and therefore may hide network latency. Migration is either triggered by the runtime system or can be initiated by the JavaParty programmer. A future version will have some additional compile time analysis.
JavaParty compiles programs to ordinary Java ByteCode, and interfaces with existing Java code, retaining the broad compatibility of Java. And after you've added JavaParty, you can continue to use all of the old Java libraries as well as your own past code!
