Mark Wielaard: New GPG key. Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

Bundle-Bee - transparent, grid-distributed OSGi computing

In my famous company innoQ I currently have the opportunity to work on a real cool tool: Bundle-Bee. It claims to be able to take any OSGi bundle and distribute the computational load to an ad-hoc grid (e.g. all machines in an office) without special setup or configuration. We just released version 0.5.3 which is still very restricted and far from feature complete - we don't even know what feature completeness might mean - but is already quite useful when it comes to doing computationally intensive things. Like fractals ... for example. Fractal computing is known to be computationally intensive and it may take long times to render the fascinating images. On the other hand, the nature of the problem gives a straight forward way to compute the 2D area in separated tiles and thus - in parallel.  Bundle-Bee is about taking any OSGi bundle an distributing parts of that bundles computational code over a grid with (close-to) zero configuration. We did so e.g. on one of our company's meeting, where we ran the fractal computation on the attendees notebooks in parallel without any hassle. Just let them all start the Bundle-Bee equipped OSGi container (not a big deal) and they immediately make up an ad-hoc grid. Even one iPhone has been part of the game. The fractals jar is automagically flooded to the grid and execution load is split among all ...
