Description: Charlotte: Metacomputing on the Web. Parallel computing on local area networks is generally based on mechanisms that specifically target the properties of the local area network environment. However, these mechanisms do not effectively extend to wide area networks due to issues such as heterogeneity, security, and administrative boundaries. We present a system which enables application programmers to write parallel programs in Java and allows Java-capable browsers to execute parallel tasks. It comprises a virtual machine model which isolates the program from the execution environment, and a runtime system realizing this virtual machine on the Web. Load balancing and fault masking are transparently provided by the runtime system.
