Abstract [en]

This thesis describes techniques for defining independent tasks in Java programs forparallelization. Existing Java parallelization APIs like JOMP, Parallel Java,Deterministic Parallel Java, JConqurr and JaMP are discussed. We have seen that JaMPis an implementation of OpenMP for Java, and it has a set of OpenMP directives andruntime library functions. We have discussed that JaMP has source to byte codecompiler, and it does not help in debugging the parallel source codes. There is no designtime syntax checking support of JaMP directives, and we know about mistakes onlywhen we compile the source code with JaMP compiler. So we have decided tocontribute JaMP with adding an option in the compiler to get parallel source code. Wehave created an eclipse plug-in to support design time syntax checking of JaMPdirectives too. It also helps the programmers to get quickly parallel source code withjust one click instead of using shell commands with JaMP compiler.
