Description:An environment for creating new workflows and executing them through different workflow management systems
Abstract:Workflows provide abstractions to describe grid applications, and workflow systems can handle the applications enactment taking advantage of parallelism expressed in the workflow representation. Many different workflow systems, which language implement different parallel model of computations, have been developed and are in use today.
To cope with the multiplicity of workflow environments, and the emerging need to integrate existing workflows that have been developed using different workflow languages, the SHIWA project provides a multi-systems workflow execution platform and an interoperability solution. The platform currently supports seven workflow systems: Askalon, Kepler, LONI pipeline, MOTEUR, Taverna, Triana and WS-PGRADE. It provides a repository for publishing and sharing workflow applications. Workflows from different systems can be nested to compose new applications, using existing workflow components.
