Yes that's one for sure, and there were also some others, don't have
the URLs at hand right now, one other being from Prague I believe.
The point is those are mainly P/Invoke wrappers, requiring MPICH2 or
LAM/MPI to be installed on each node as I understand, which is more
suited for a cluster than for a grid. I'll give it a try though.
For Java there are a lot more options, for example the Globus Toolkit
(http://globus.org/toolkit/), based on the OGSA (Web Services).
The PMPI from São Paulo ("PMPI: A multi-platform, multi-programming
language MPI using .NET") was the best equivalent I could find to
date but their paper does not give a source location and Google
didn't find any. Their implementation is based on .NET Remoting.
OGSI.NET (http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~gsw2c/ogsi.net.html) and
WSRF.NET (http://www.ws-rf.net/) on the other hand, being sponsored
by Microsoft, appear to rely on Microsoft's WSE, which is not
available for Mono.
