Abstract

A simple method/process to build an extendable sequential flow mutli-threaded Java application without recompiling any base modules, as new ones are added. The key to this invention is the use of an XML control file. The control file defines how the base Java application will function. For instance, it determines how communication between the different modules will take place, how data will be passed among them (e.g., via primary memory or secondary memory), and will layout parallel execution (multi-threading) paths where appropriate.
