The Aleph Toolkit Home Page

The Aleph Toolkit is a collection of Javatm packages that support distributed computations that run across networks of heterogeneous workstations. Aleph provides the ability to start threads on remote processors, to communicate by message-passing, by ordered multicast, and by shared objects (with transparent synchronization and caching).

Aleph is a research project, and is continually under development.  We are releasing the current version in the hope that it might be useful. We encourage comments, complaints, bug fixes, and enhancements.
