Korus is an open source parallel and distributed programming framework based on actor pattern. It is an extremely scalable and high performance framework that gives a lot of control to java programmers. It is licensed under GPL v3.0
A lot of effort has gone into keeping the framework simple. In addition you can add extensions/add-ons to the existing framework. Some of them are already a part of the current distribution.
1. Asynchronous Message passing
2. Support for distributed task execution (Stateless grid)
3. Thread-less concurrency: No Thread Programming
4. Korus Add-ons
We have just started and currently at version 1.0. Our short term roadmap is laid out in terms of features and we are working on crystallizing our long term roadmap. We will work on the schedule soon. Finally not to mention, we look forward for suggestions, comments and patches!! We have pre-planned a small party as soon as we have our first official bug
