A new networking tool, the TCP port multiplexer, was implemented to enable JPPF to work in firewalled environments.
It enables the routing of all JPPF network traffic through a single port, without any modification to the existing applications.
More details can be found on the JPPF And Networking wiki page
A new node management feature was added, that enables updating a node's execution thread pool dynamically.
A new node monitoring feature was added, allowing the collection of the node's system and java environments.
Several bugs were fixed that caused errors to be raised when management was disabled in a server or a node.
the Java Parallel Processing Framework is a grid computing toolkit for Java that makes it easy to run applications in parallel, and speed up their execution by orders of magnitude.
Write once, deploy once, execute everywhere!
JPPF has many outstanding features:
a JPPF grid can be up and running in minutes
highly scalable, distributed framework for the execution of Java tasks
leverages JCA 1.5 to integrate with leading J2EE application servers
easy programming model that abstracts the complexity of distributed and parallel processing
graphical and programmatic tools for fine-grained monitoring and administration
reliability through redundancy, recovery and failover capabilities
a set of fully documented sample applications, demonstrating the use of JPPF on real-life problems
very flexible and non-constraining open-source licensing
and more ....
