==== Description: ====
paradis [from "PARallell And DIStributed computing network"] is a package
written in Java, and is engineered to be highly extensible and portable.
Topic: Distributed computing

paradis is a service which uses plug-ins for its primary functionality, what
can be downloaded form other users.
paradis builds a network where users can request CPU power from other users,
the computed task is implemented as a plug-in, but the plug-in is not required
from receiving the request and send it to other users.

So the purpose of the package is to let others uses your computer's power when
you do not need it, but only for tasks you approve. And what makes it special
is that the package builds network of users do not necessarily do not want to
do the same task, allowing the task to be forwarded to another user that may
want to do it.
