Description
This event will interest those who are seeking to develop applications using the gLite middleware.

This timetable is provisional. Details of presenters will be finalised shortly.

The focus is primarily on different techniques for creating, submitting and orchestrating jobs:

  • scripting
  • the Ganga tool
  • use of APIs
  • P-GRADE and GEMLCA

Brief sessions also give experience of metadata management in gLite and of application monitoring.

Participants will have some basic knowledge of gLite, such as the EGEE Induction course gives. They will for example be familiar with the command line interface for job submission, with voms-proxy-init, with editing UNIX commands and text files.
