Abstract:
The purpose of this work is to determine whether the Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) distributed computing architecture, that is so widely used for business applications, can serve as a platform for a parallel processing computing cluster suitable for scientific and numerical processing. This paper describes a research project currently being undertaken to implement a parallel processing computing system using EJB and test it to determine what potential usefulness it may have for solving computationally intensive numerical problems. If an enterprise or organization that is already using EJB for its distributed business or scientific applications could also harness this computing power to solve computationally intensive problems, it could dramatically broaden the usefulness of an existing computing infrastructure. An EJB based parallel processing cluster such as this could also be used as the infrastructure for a Grid Computing Environment (GCE). Class libraries would be used to allow application programs to access grid computational resources, while the services provided by the EJB distributed computing environment would be used to provide a foundation for a computational grid.
