OGCE Web Site and Download Reorganization

The OGCE Web Site is being revised to better reflect the reorganization of our downloadable components. Here are the major download suites:
  • The OGCE portlet-based Grid portal: this download combines Tomcat, Gridsphere portlet container, and many OGCE portlets developed with OGCE libraries.
  • The OGCE Axis Web Services Suite: this includes several OGCE services (currently GPIR, the Resource Prediction Service, and the Resource Discovery Service) combined into an integrated, one-step build.
  • The OGCE Workflow Suite: this suite contains workflow composer and engine (XBaya), the GFAC application factory, XRegistry, and related components.
  • GTLAB: This is a collection of Java Server Faces tags and supporting code for building Grid portlets and gadgets. The current version supports simple tag pipelining (so you can associate multiple tasks with a single HTML button click). Tags are no longer limited to Grid clients--any thing can be used.
  • OGCE Gadget Container: this is a preview of our work to build an Open Social and iGoogle-compatible container. We view this as the successor to the portlet standard we have used in the past.
See the web site for more information.
