Java Gearman Service

Java Gearman Service is a Java implementation of the gearman service, which provides a generic application framework that farms work out to other machines or processes that are better suited to do the work. It allows you to do work in parallel, to load balance processing, and to call functions in other languages. It can be used in a variety of applications, from high-availability Web sites to the transport of database replication events.
