Parallel and Distributed Computing Environments for Java

As well as reviewing select computing environments for Java, this section includes discussion of communication frameworks including Java RMI and Message Passing libraries for Java. PVM and MPJ are discussed as examples of message passing libraries. MPJ is an effort by members of the Java Grande Forum [33] to define a consensus MPI-like interface for Java.
