Metacomputing is an emergent paradigm that makes it possible to distribute applications over a heterogeneous set of computing systems to exploit all available resources. The paper presents the HPO environment for object oriented metacomputing. The HPO programming model is based on the object oriented paradigm and defines architecture independent and portable applications. The HPO support makes it possible to distribute applications over a network of heterogeneous architectures. The paper describes this approach via several examples and evaluates its achieved performances. © 1997 IEEE.
