Subject Re: Commons sub project for parallel method execution
Date Mon, 12 Jun 2017 22:15:46 GMT
Hi Gary,

Thanks for your response. You have some valid and interesting points :-)
Of course you are right that Spark is much more mature. Thanks for your
insight.
It will be interesting indeed to find out if the core parallelization
engine of Spark can be isolated like you suggest.

I started working on this project because I felt that there was no good
library for parallelizing method calls which can be plugged in easily into
an existing java project. Ultimately, if such a solution can be
incorporated in the Apache Commons, it would be a useful addition to the
Commons repository.

Thanks,
Arun
