Desktop grids are an emerging trend converging volunteer computing and grid computing. Unfortunately existing applications usually have to be modified in order to run on desktop grid systems which makes them less attractive for application developers than traditional grid systems. DC-API is simple API that is specifically targeted for desktop grid systems with the goal to provide an API which hides the specifics of the underlying grid environment but require only minimal modifications to existing application source code. Native Java applications are not directly supported by BOINC. In this paper we describe DC-API, and show how the lack of Java support in BOINC is overcome with DC-API by providing an API for native Java applications on the BOINC platform.
