Previous work : Barcelona Java Suite

January 12th, 2007|

In 1999, we started the project Barcelona Java Suite (BJS) under CEPBA. The BJS was a platform for doing research on scheduling mechanisms and policies oriented towards the efficient execution of multithreaded Java applications on parallel platforms, in which the interactions and coordination between mechanisms and policies at different levels (application, compiler, threads library and kernel) was studied. The BJS made use of components previously developed at the CEPBA. The environment integrated techniques and tools proposed in different research frameworks, enabling the exploitation of their combined potential and the development of new algorithms and ideas. Mainly the work was devised across 3 lines: Java Extensions: The use of Java for HPC faced a number of problems that were subject of research. One of them was related with the lack [...]
