This paper describes a novel peer-to-peer (P2P) environment for running distributed Java applications on the Internet. The possible application areas include simple load balancing, parallel evolutionary computation, agent-based simulation and artificial life. Our environment is based on cutting-edge P2P technology. We introduce and analyze the concept of long term memory which provides protection against partitioning of the network. We demonstrate the potentials of our approach by analyzing a simple distributed application. We present theoretical and empirical evidence that our approach is scalable, effective and robust.
