The portability of Java language makes it possible to use heterogeneous computers without re-compiling of application programs. Java applet can also be transported to other computers via Web browser. In this research, a Cooperative Web Computing Environment(CWCE) that uses idle computers on the Intranet for cooperative parallel computing work is suggested. The CWCE allows to use more than a manager computer that sends applets and manages communication between other computers. The number of manager computers can be determined according to the characteristics of computing environment and any chosen application program. It can reduce the amount of communication overhead for the application programs especially with synchronized communication. For the CWCE, a decision function to determine the managing level is provided. The CWCE turns out to be useful computing environment for the applications with less computation request ratio and multi-managing can help to reduce the communication overhead especially for the applications with a high ratio of synchronization purpose communications.
