Hi, In our university bought a machine with CO-PROCESSOR PHI. The description in the site: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intelr-xeon-phitm-coprocessor-february-developer-webinar-q... It is reported that there is no support JAVA yet. The answer is 2013 and we are already in 2015. Is there a Java option for coding? Tks Rafael

Porting Java to Xeon Phi would be a good CS project. As to if the end product of the project would be desirable for others to use... that would be up to the implementation and to the particular type of applications you run with Java.

An alternative to running Java inside the Xeon Phi is to use offload mode. A likely good starting route would be to use JNA (Java Native Architecture) for Java/C++ or Java/Fortran interoperability.

I suppose some people have tinkered with java native (e.g. gnu java compiler) on Intel(r) Xeon Phi(tm) but there is little to brag about if it can't deliver better performance than it does on a modern laptop.
