Massively-parallel graphics processors have the potential to offer high performance at low cost. However, at present such devices are largely inaccessible from higher-level languages such as Java. This work allows compilation from Java bytecode by making use of annotations to specify loops for parallel execution. Data copying to and from the GPU is handled automatically. Evaluation showed that significant speedups could be achieved (up to 180x), that were similar to those claimed by other less-automated work.
