The JavaGrande Forum is a group of users, researchers, and interested parties from industry. The Forum members are either trying to use Java for resource-intensive applications or are trying to improve the Java platform, making it possible to create large-sized applications that run quickly and effciently in Java. In order to improve its floating point arithmetic, the Forum has suggested to add the keywords strictfp and fastfp to the Java programming lan- guage It has has worked on complex numbers, multidimensional arrays, fast object serializations, and a high-speed remote method invocation (RMI). Results about the new field of research that has been started by the JavaGrande Forum have been recognized both internationally and within Sun Microsystems. 1 Grande, as found in the phrase “Rio Grande” is the prevalent designation for the term large or big in many languages. In American English, the term Grande has established itself as describing size within the coffee house scene.
