Java, parallel programming language, Single Program Multiple Data, SPMD
Computer Sciences | Programming Languages and Compilers
As a relatively straightforward object-oriented language, Java is a plausible basis for a scientific parallel programming language. We outline a conservative set of language extensions to support this kind of programming. The programming style advocated is Single Program Multiple Data (SPMD), with parallel arrays added as language primitives. Communications involving distributed arrays are handled through a standard library of collective operations. Because the underlying programming model is SPMD programming, direct calls to other communication packages are also possible from this language.
