[concurrency-interest] Need advice

I am an environmental research scientist and I am contemplating porting 
a large computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation model from 
Fortran 90/95 to Java. The code currently runs on unix/Linux clusters 
using MPI, distributing "patches" of two-dimensional arrays to separate 
nodes/processors to run concurrently (in parallel).

If I restructure the code to use objects inherent to the problem 
instead of global arrays of data, what is the current state-of-the-art 
framework for distributing these objects to different machines 
(nodes/processors) in a cluster?

Thank you, in advance, for your advice and insights.
