Overall Summary

We have discussed the design and development of mpiJava--a pure Java interface to MPI. We have also highlighted the benefits of a fully object-oriented Java API compared to those currently available. Our performance tests have shown that mpiJava should fulfil the needs of MPI programmers not only in terms of functionality but also in terms of good performance when compared to similar C MPI programs. Overall, we feel that we have implemented a well-designed, functional and efficient Java interface to MPI.
