Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Embedding MPI program into a webservice ?

I do not know anything about implementing webservices, but you should
take a look at MPI-2 dynamic process management. This way, your
webservice can MPI_Comm_spawn() a brand-new set of parallel processes
doing the heavy work. This way, your webservice will act as a kind of
proxy application between the request coming from the outside world
and your parallel computing resources...
