> Any work done on this ( see below ) using Erlang in Sweden ?
I'm doing some research on grid computing, but it seems that no one uses
Erlang for grids, even if it is a very attractive language for such
large parallel and distributed systems.
I used Erlang to write a simulator for resource allocation algorithm in
a grid. And I exploited multiple process support for simulating a
400-nodes grid (a process for each node). It worked well!
But, for a real environment, I think that we *must* accept the
monstruosities of the Globus toolkit, with its XMLRPC/SOAP/WebServices,
etc.... It is a standard, today :-(
