Abstract

Free upgrade of computer power with Java, web-base technology and parallel computing Alfred Loo\ Y.K. Choi * and Chris Bloor* *Lingnan University, Hong Kong *City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong ^University of Sunderland, Sunderland, United Kingdom Abstract This paper presents inexpensive ways to implement parallel computing which will make tremendous impact on many areas of computer application. Any one has knowledge of Java and more than two computers can solve their old problems with new technology by use of parallel computing. However, parallel computers are still expensive today and thus only very large companies and rich universities can afford the use of parallel computing technologies to solve their complex problems. Special training is also required for programmers who write parallel programs. With the advancement of Java and Internet/Intranet technologies, small to medium size companies can now also use the benefit of parallel computing to solve computa
