DAP2 has a test set defined in more or less language-independent manner. Here's the description of tests.

Test 0 - calculate a sum of array filled with 'double' precision floating point numbers. This must be the fastest way to get the sum. You are free to code this in any way. In C++ it would be a simple 'fortran' style loop. In Java it's a little trickier, e.g. HotSpot optimization won't work with that loop.

Beta released

I'm glad to announce that beta version is available as a source release at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/dap2/dap2/releases/dap2-beta1.zip

It contains sources for Java and C#. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to put batch scripts together, but it shouldn't be a problem to build a project without them.

I also tested the benchmark on my Dell PowerEdge 1600sc server under Red Hat Linux 8 and Windows 2000. Raw results are in http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/dap2/dap2/results/... read more

DAP version 1 sources uploaded

I uploaded the sources for the DAP for Java version 1.1 in the directory "old". It's a minor modification to the original (version 1.0) benchmark. I also uploaded the test timimgs for IBM, Sun and JRockit JDKs.

I uploaded the initial version of DAP2 sources for Java.
I just started with C# port.
