Clutch: released (finally!)Posted: June 13, 2007
At long last, I’ve finally gotten my act together and released Clutch – the project that I’ve been developing over the last year or two as a part of my Master’s thesis work – on SourceForge.net. “What is Clutch?”, you ask? Well, according to the project page:
Clutch is a Java framework for distributed computing using mobile agents. It is meant to be a scalable toolkit that can be used to distribute computation across an arbitrary number of nodes.
Note that this description is likely to change slightly, as my advisor has an aversion to the work “framework” as applied to this particular project. (Long story…don’t ask…) At any rate, despite the fact that I now have a mountain of work ahead of me – code audit, initial checkin, documentation…oh God, documentation! – it’s exciting that I finally have the opportunity to move beyond the potential licensing nightmare (another long story…) that I was facing and actually publicly release my project.
