Abstract
Java 1 has emerged as a dominant language that could eventually replace C++. It is believed that using Java would boost programmer productivity because of its well-thought design, independence from backward-compatibility with C, absence of arbitrary pointers, etc. We present the design and implementation of a parallel extension to Java. The parallel extension provides dynamic creation of remote objects with load balancing, and object groups. The language constructs are based on those of Charm++. The parallel Java extension is implemented using the Converse interoperability framework, which makes it possible to integrate parallel libraries written in Java with modules in other parallel languages in a single application.
