JAVAB - A prototype bytecode parallelization tool
JAVAB is a prototype bytecode tool that can automatically
detect and exploit implicit loop parallelism in bytecode,
i.e. the architectural neutral instructions of the JVM. Implicit
parallelism is made explicit by means of the multi-threading mechanism
provided by the JVM. Automatically exploiting implicit
parallelism at bytecode level can be done independently from
the source program and platform from which the bytecode was obtained,
and independently from the platform on which the bytecode eventually
will run. The parallelized bytecode remains architectural neutral
and may exhibit speedup on any platform
that supports the true parallel execution of JVM threads.
Note that JAVAB has been incorporated in the Fortran-to-Java
f2j (Dongarra and Seymour).
