I was wondering if anyone is familiar with SALSA.

Ofcourse I am not referring to a latino form of dance. It is quite an interesting approach to distributed application programming. Based on Java as you compile your ".salsa" files to a ".java" file. Then you compile the java file to a java class.

I have a certain project coming up which would require some form of distributed programming to enhance performance. I was wondering if anyone could give me their opinion about SALSA and whether it could be a reliable resource to use.

I'm posting separately the summary of the project for anyone interested to comment on the approach I should take.

Here in Texas we think Salsa is a condiment!
Seriously - thank you for calling my attention to the SALSA project. When thinking of distributed computing I tend to think of JINI and JavaSpaces, technologies that fairly widely supported, but still not that easy to get started with.

SALSA web page certainly uses all the right buzz-words, but I would not venture an opinion on usability without trying it.

If you do venture into SALSA for your project, please keep us up to date on your progress.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
