Well from what I know Boost.MPI contains only MPI-1 functions
(but refer to the boost mailing list for support http://lists.boost.org/mailman/listinfo.cgi/boost-users);
so Intercommunicators are not managed by the Boost.MPI library, and you have to use the stardard MPI functions.
So, by now, I think it's not possible to send a user defined serializable object through an intercommunicator.
I wanted to send come complex user defined types between MPI processes and found out that Boost.MPI is quite easy to use for my requirement.So far it worked well and I received my object model in every process without problems.
Now I am going to spawn processes (using MPI_Comm_spawn, because Boot.MPI doesn't have such a function) and then use Boost.MPI to send the objects across newly created child processes.
Is there any issues with this procedure?
And Boost.MPI says it only support OpenMPI 1.0.x (http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_40_0/doc/html/mpi/getting_started.html#mpi.mpi_impl)
Will there be any version incompatibilities ?
thanks in advance,
