Java OpenCL

Project JOCL provides an easy to use Java binding for the OpenCL API. JOCL exposes the OpenCL API in two levels: A automatically generated low level JNI based binding and a hand written high level binding on top of the generated interfaces. The high level bindings provide a convenient interface and reduce verbosity to a minimum.

Features / Project Goals

  • high performance, cross platform, high and low level OpenCL bindings
  • intuitive API
  • seamless interoperability with JOGL
  • secure - automatic Exception handling, no resource management in native code etc
  • GC friendly - no weak references, finalizers or other cheats
  • utility API for Program management, CommandQueue synchronization and more
