Vine Toolkit

A uniform access and portal solution to existing grid middleware services P.Dziubecki, T.Kuczynski, K.Kurowski, D.Szejnfeld, D.Tarnawczyk, M.Wolniewicz CGW 2009

Agenda  Typical approaches and solutions for HPC.

 Vine Toolkit as an environment for complex computational scenarios.

 BeInGrid wow2green project as an example instance of Vine Toolkit framework.

 Upcoming work – PL-Grid project.

 Conclusions.

CGW 2009

Current state of art  Grid middlewares: Globus Toolkit, gLite, Unicore, Gria, QosCosGrid...

 Security mechanisms: x509, Ldap...

 Additional tools: Schedulers, Metaschedulers, Workflow engines..

Vine Toolkit : features  A

modular and extensible

framework, Java/Flex based  integration with

different portal frameworks,

including well known web products like Gridsphere, Liferay,  advanced

BlazeDs data services

improve the client-server communication to develop highly interactive and dynamic web applications, CGW 2009

Vine Toolkit : features 

Adobe Flex/Flash

technology allows creating advanced and sophisticated web interfaces similar to many stand-alone GUIs,  uniform common API exposed to the end user which abstracts various middleware implementations,  generic

resource based model

- any services and data sources can be integrated with web applications using high-level APIs.
