JPPF makes it easy to parallelize computationally intensive tasks and execute them on a Grid
What's new in v3.0:
Simplified network configuration: only one TCP port for grid operations, only one port for management, that's only 2 ports needed instead of 5 in previous versions.
Server manual and auto discovery can now be mixed.
Distributed class loading: full documentation, new extensions, multiple delegation models enable faster startup of grid jobs and nodes, and open up new possibilities for efficient and flexible grid usage. A new example illustrates how these can be used to automate the management of remote grid nodes classpath.
New extension points allow powerful capabilities to be easily added to an existing grid infrastructure.
4 new examples were added to the distribution:
- How to receive notifications of nodes connecting and disconnecting on the server
- Job recovery after an application crash
- Using a node initialization hook to implement a sophisticated failover mechanism
- Automating the deployment and management of application libraries in the nodes at runtime
