This paper presents a more efficient Java remote method invocation (RMI) implementation for high-speed clusters. The use of Java for parallel programming on clusters is limited by the lack of efficient communication middleware and high-speed cluster interconnect support. This implementation overcomes these limitations through a more efficient Java RMI protocol based on several basic assumptions on clusters. Moreover, the use of a high performance sockets library provides with direct high-speed interconnect support. The performance evaluation of this middleware on a gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and a scalable coherent interface (SCI) cluster shows experimental evidence of throughput increase. Moreover, qualitative aspects of the solution such as transparency to the user, interoperability with other systems and no need of source code modification can augment the performance of existing parallel Java codes and boost the development of new high performance Java RMI applications.
