Description : parallel computation framework for Java
Java framework that supports a style of parallel programming
in which problems are solved by (recursively) splitting them
into subtasks that are solved in parallel, waiting for them
to complete, and then composing results.
Fork/Join parallelism is among the simplest and most
effective design techniques for obtaining good parallel
performance. Fork/Join algorithms are parallel versions
of familiar divide-and-conquer algorithms.
JSR166y includes a parallel computation framework:
ForkJoinTasks and their related support classes provide a
very efficient basis for obtaining platform-independent
parallel speed-ups of computation-intensive operations.
This package is needed for GPars (a parallelism framework
for Groovy language).
