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’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
