The use of java in high performance computing: A data mining example
The role of Java in high performance computing is discussed with particular reference to the efforts of the Java Grande Forum to develop Java into the environment of choice for large-scale, resource-hungry applications. The support provided in HP Java for the design of parallel Java programmes is outlined, and its use demonstrated with a data mining application based on a neural network.
