%X The architecture and performance of a Java implementation of
a structured distributed shared memory system, PastSet, is
described. The PastSet abstraction allows programmers to
write applications that run efficiently on different
architectures, from clusters to widely distributed systems.
PastSet is a tuple\-based three\-dimensional structured
distributed shared memory system, which provides the
programmer with operations to perform causally ordered reads
and writes of tuples to a virtual structured memory space
called the PastSet. It has been shown that the original,
native code, PastSet was able to outperform MPI and PVM when
running real applications and we show that the design
translates into Java so that Java PastSet is a qualified
competitor to other cluster application programming
interfaces for Java.
