Projects / ProActive


ProActive is a Java library for parallel, distributed, and concurrent computing as well as mobility and security in a uniform framework. It provides a comprehensive API and a graphical interface and is based on an Active Object pattern, a uniform way to encapsulate a remotely accessible object, a thread as an asynchronous activity, an actor with its own script, a server of incoming requests, a mobile and secure agent, and a component with server and client interfaces. It simplifies the programming of applications distributed over a LAN, clusters, an intranet, or Internet GRIDs.
