Process group.

Group is a class representing a process group, typically with a grid structure and an associated set of process dimensions. It has its subclasses that represent different grid dimensionalities, such as Procs1, Procs2, etc. For example,
Procs2 p = new Procs2(2,4);
An HPJava program will be executed in parallel across the processes of a grid.
