mpiJava is stable on NT platforms using WMPI and JDK 1.1
or later. To test mpiJava under Windows NT we had the choice
of a number of MPI implementations to pick from [#!BAKER!#]. We chose
WMPI [#!WMPI!#] from the Instituto Supererior de Engenharia de
Coimbra, Portugal. WMPI is a full implementation of MPI for Microsoft
Win32 platforms. WMPI is based on MPICH and includes a p4
[#!BUTLER!#] device standard. WMPI can co-exist and interact with
MPICH/ch_p4 in a cluster of mixed UNIX and Win32 platforms. WMPI is
still under development and is freely available.
To create a release of mpiJava for WMPI, the mpiJava JNI C interface
was compiled into a Win32 Dynamic Link Library (mpiJava.dll),
then the Java MPI interface was compiled into class libraries, and
finally a JNI interface to WMPI was created.
