then you can spawn number of interpreters = to cpu and get around the multi threading problem?

then get around cluster problem by having x smalltalks on y boxes all communicate ? with same message passing

I think openMPI does this??


this would lead to vastly scalable web apps and databases yes?

You may be asking the wrong question. If you want vastly scalable applications, don't start with a technical solution in mind and asking whether anyone does that. Instead, consider having a large number of Smalltalk VMs running against a common "image". Does that sound like it will provide a solution to your real needs?

In a word, yes, that does sound good.

In that case, I suggest you check out GemStone/S carefully. You can start with the free GemStone/S Web Edition (usually called GLASS). Details on GLASS can be found at http://gemtalksystems.com/index.php/products/glass-seaside/.

Good luck and have fun.

Yeah, we do this all the time. We generally use sockets and object serialization...but you can use GemStone or OpenTalk too.

awesome

so you can have a cluster of servers and program the cluster to say run a website and take care of data?

then expand the cluster when needed by adding more nodes?
