Ricardo Gomes, Roseclea Medina


The process of plagiarism identification in digital texts still has challenges. One of them is the long time necessary for computer programs do the analysis of big digital documents sets. This work reports the improvement of an open-source plagiarism checking tool by applying parallel-distributed computing techniques, using threads and Java RMI, bringing benefits for teachers, professors, evaluators and general users. Performance tests have shown the new version of the program reaches a speedup of 1.99 with the usage of two processing threads, that is, reduction of approximately 50% in analysis time.
