Concluding remarks

In this report, we discussed design and implementation issues in HPJava, a new programming language we have proposed. We claim that the language has the flexibility of SPMD programming, and much of the convenience of HPF. Related languages include F- [9], Spar [12], ZPL [10] and Titanium [13]. They all take different approaches from ours. The implementation of HPJava is straightforwardly supported by a runtime library. In the next step, we will complete the HPJava translator and implement further optimizations. At the same time, we plan to integrate further SPMD libraries into the framework.
