In the world of P Systems many different parallel simulators have been developed, both software and hardware based. There are software implementations with parallel computing technologies such as MPI and Hadoop as well as hardware implementations on FPGA and GPGPU. In parallel, significant theory has been developed in the world of testing P Systems based on execution paths. These testing algorithms require significant computational power to develop the oracles, a task well suited to the developed simulators. This paper will look at the different technologies used to develop simulators (and the simulators built with those technologies) and evaluate their adaptability for use in developing testing oracles, required for the already developed testing theory.
