DJFractal is yet another fractal generator which distributes fractal data to multiple computers. Fractal data are created locally and distributed to other computers that run the appropriate fractal-generation software, which may be hosted on workstations, or on a Java enabled Web-browser through applets, or on a system with JavaCard. DJFractal's unique feature is the "smart" algorithm it uses to compute (and draw) the most interesting part of a fractal first.
Mandala is a Java library which eases the development of concurrent object-oriented applications by using the concept of asynchronous references. Mandala also provides remote asynchronous references in order to create distributed applications. Mandala is dynamic in that objects do not have to be specifically written to be accessed asynchronously (and remotely).
Sequencer is an engine used by system administrators for the computation and execution of sequences of actions over hardware or software. It can ping various devices in parallel, power on your whole cluster, or generate an Emergency PowerOff (EPO) script for your data center or cluster. It takes into account various dependencies (power off nodes before switches, clients before server), deals with failures kindly, and is very efficient (>4000 nodes in less than 10 minutes).
Helping the development of a new "smart" fractal generator Hi, I found this article very interesting and as far as I understand, some of you feel upset by the lack of a ...
