In this chapter we give a general overview of some interesting
research and systems related to ours. We will be especially interested in
technologies developed in
recent years by participants of bodies like the Java Grande Forum and the
Global Grid Forum.
We start with discussion of parallel and distributed computing environments
for Java. We briefly review contemporary Java-specific distributed
computing technology and how they related to our high performance
infrastructures. Finally Java as language to support parallel and scientific
computing is compared with C++ and C#.
Environments for Parallel and
