Jini + Groovy + GlassFish == ComputeCycles Project

An Allocated Session in ComputeCycles

The JavaPosse is running a series of interviews on the ComputeCycles project. The first interview is quite enjoyable, specially if you are new to the area; and the interview gets better as it progresses.

ComputeCycles is based on the ideas of Linda's TupleSpaces and JavaSpaces and ComputeCycles are implementing these using Jini as the foundational infrastructure, GlassFish as the container and Groovy as configuration classes.

Jini has been around for a while and has not got wide adoption but the world has changed and this project seems well grounded in commercial use cases (financial modeling). ComputeCycles was also described at JavaOne '06 in TS 3714. We will keep tracking the project and will let you know.
