Release Notes: Significant enhancements were made to the Client API. Support was improved for client application integration (e.g. portals) and for client orchestration of complex federation scenarios. GRIA now supports the ability to dynamically discover token sources and chain multiple token issuance requests automatically. .NET client applications can be integrated directly with the GRIA client's Java API using IKVM. A new Microsoft Active Directory (Kerberos) single-sign-on service was added to the client management package.
Release Notes: This release provides significant feature enhancements to the Basic and OGSA-DAI application service packages, along with usability and performance enhancements to other packages. The Basic Application Services package has improved interoperability through its support for JSDL, and a modular plugin-based system for connecting to clustering facilities. Interoperability with .NET has also been a major focus of this release.
Release Notes: This release provides significant new features and usability enhancements to both the management packages and the client. The core infrastructure stack has been further aligned with key Web Service security and policy specifications. New services include a Membership Service, Registry Service, and an improved SLA service.
Release Notes: Included in this release are tools for deploying and running Taverna workflows as GRIA applications. A command line deployment tool generates GRIA application wrapper scripts and other files from a Taverna workflow. Running the deployment tool generates a new application that can be deployed to the GRIA Job service in the usual way using the Job Service Administration Web pages.
Release Notes: This service puts OGSA-DAI WS-I 2.2 into the GRIA framework. It features easy deployment via a WAR file, easy configuration with a Web-based configuration and management interface, GRIA's standard security features, including dynamic security policies, and transport level encryption, message level security, and OGSA-DAI session security, which ensures that a user's session cannot be hijacked. Linking this service to the GRIA service provider management package also allows monitoring of databases, access control to databases by way of SLAs, and billing for database access.
Release Notes: Changes include support for GRIA 5, including using free services, service level agreements, and integration with client management infrastructure. This release has been upgraded to Taverna 1.4.
Release Notes: This release provides a reliability upgrade, including various bugfixes for the basic application services, service provider management, client, and client management packages.
Release Notes: This release provides a modular and flexible management infrastructure based on a wider use of Web Service standards. There are 4 software packages to address the following business needs: allow an organisation with cluster computing facilities to provide data storage and processing to trusted users; provide support for service level agreements to manage and bill for service usage; allow users to access GRIA application services via desktop applications and develop integrated applications via a simple API; and provide support for organisation-level management of service users.
Release Notes: This version fixes a security vulnerability in the Apache WSS4J library. It also provides some minor bugfixes to the documentation, as well as an account service administration tool.
Release Notes: The workflow service enables a GRIA service provider to deploy workflows that have been composed using the Taverna workflow tool and the GRIA Workflow Plugins. Such workflows are made available as aggregate applications and can be executed by clients in a similar manner to GRIA jobs.
