    Abstract

    We report on extensions to a Java distributed computation library (JDCL) by Fritsche, Power, and Waldron, with application to a problem in the field of bioinformatics. Within our framework the system has been extended to support applications requiring a MIMD (multiple instruction, multiple data) architecture. The system has been evaluated through a DNA pattern matching application over a network of 90 PCs. The user is required to extend only two Java classes to completely configure a distributed computation.
