Great Intro for Type Constructor Polymorphism in Scala

http://lampwww.epfl.ch/~odersky/papers/fsttcs2009.pdf

This is a great paper by M. Odersky and a. Moors explaining how Type Constructor Polymorphism (Higher-Kinded Types) was used in designing Scala 2.8 collection library and how it helped avoid most of the code repetition that plagued pre-Scala 2.8 collection library.

It is a pretty dense read but nonetheless critical for library/DSL designers in Scala.

  1. Hi,

    Can gridgain be used for volunteer computing projects like BOINC does ?

    Basically do the nodes have to be in controlled administrative domain or nodes can be on internet (non-dedicated resources , cycle-stealing mode) ?

    Do client-server communicate via webservices ?
