Pluggable aspect-oriented support for parallel computing
{ Wed, 30 May 2007, 14h00 }

By: João Luís Ferreira Sobral  [ show info ]

Current trend towards multi-core systems requires a massive migration of software from traditional platforms to multi-processors systems. In traditional environments, parallelization issues are mixed with domain specific code and scattered throughout the system's code. The resulting lack of modularity and reusability significantly raises development and maintenance costs. This talk presents a new approach to develop parallel applications based on Aspect-oriented programming (AOP). AOP can better localize parallelization issues, improve reusability and attain (un)plugabble parallelizations. This is a prerequisite to develop software that covers a wide range of platforms, from multi-core systems to computational Grids. We propose an incremental approach to develop aspect-oriented parallel applications, in which features related to parallelization are incrementally developed and composed, in order to build the combination of features suitable for each specific platform. Our approach is supported by an AspectJ framework, based on reusable aspects. In addition, an aspect-oriented domain specific language is under development, whose aim is to simplify development of applications based on the framework.
