Please find attached a port of aparapi, an API for expressing data parallel workflows in Java (in our case: through OpenCL).
This port is for the 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT release of upstream. Some of the patches in this port have been upstream'd by me to their master. However, their master is not stable/released.
I successfully tested this port on 11-CURRENT for an accelerated matrix multiplication using lang/beignet (single precision on IvyBridge). And yes, it is fast! :-) As none of the OpenCL ports are supported for releases <10.1, this port also does not support them.
Together with the ongoing OpenCL effort, I believe this is a valuable addition to our ports tree.
Committed, thanks. I'm sorry for the long delay!

aparapi is an open source API for expressing data parallel workflows in Java.
Originally an AMD product, Aparapi was released to open source on September

and a runtime component capable of converting the Java# bytecode of compatible
workloads into OpenCL# so that it can be executed on a variety of GPU devices.
