Hello gpars support,
I currently work on my bachelor thesis " Comparison of concurrency
frameworks for the JVM" at the university of ulm in Germany . The
comparison will regard qualitative as well as quantitative properties
and the main goal is to find out which frameworks are more appropriate
in different situations so that I'm able to write a kind of guideline
for concurrency on the JVM. To figure out that I will specifiy some
generic concurrency problems and evaluate how easy it is to implement
them with the frameworks and additionally make some performance tests
on the implementations. So far I apologize for the long introduction
and now my actual questions.
1. Can you tell me situations in which gpars faciliates programming
concurrency very much or provides great performance but also
situations were it's not that supportive. Are there papers available
about such studies of gpars or even comparisons between gpars and
other frameworks for the JVM.
2.If I send you my the specification of the problems and my actual
implementations with gpars, is it possible to give me feedback where
is space for improvement or advice to other approaches. I guess that's
necessary to ensure that my implementations are good and don't lead to
distorted results. That would be great. Thank you very.

I'm happy you included GPars in your list of technologies to evaluate.
To your questions:
1. GPars is a multi-paradigm framework, which offers several different abstractions (actors, agents, dataflow, CSP, parallel collections, ans a few more) and let's you pick the one that works best for the problem at hand or combine several of these abstractions, where it makes sense. I tried to summarize my thoughts on how to apply GPars to different types of concurrency problems in my recent talk "GPars - a how-to guide", delivered at GR8Conf EU 2013. You my find the slide deck at http://www.slideshare.net/VaclavPech/g-pars-howto and I hope the recording should be made available soon, as well (perhaps at http://gr8conf.eu/Presentations/GPars-how-to-guide).
You may also get some ideas from the user guide (http://gpars.org/1.0.0/guide/index.html) or from the other presentations listed at http://gpars.codehaus.org/Presentations
2. Feel free to send me your implementations for review, perhaps through this mailing list so that others can chime it, too.
If there are any other questions I can help you with, please let me know.
