Making Smalltalk Use More Cores

October 5, 2010 9:31:07.700

I saw this pass by in one of VisualWorks mailing lists - it's a Cincom customer successfully using multiple cores via multiple images, with a library we call Polycephaly:

We are successfully using Polycephaly in our project. One thing we use it for is to parallelize execution of (time-consuming) unit tests that check code quality. These tests execute at 28% of original time, when using Polycephaly on a quad-core box.

That library is in the preview directory of the distribution (for ObjectStudio as well!) - take a look.
