Thoughts on the structure of an MPJ reference implementation.

We sketch a proposed reference implementation for MPJ, the Java Grande Forum's MPI-like message-passing API [9,3]. The proposal relies heavily on RMI and Jini for finding computational resources, creating slave processes, and handling failures. User-level communication is implemented efficiently directly on top of Java sockets.
