Name:UNICORE Rich Client
Description:The UNICORE Rich Client provides a full featured graphical interface to the UNICORE middleware
Abstract:The Eclipse-based UNICORE Rich Client (URC) offers the full set of UNICORE functionalities in a graphical representation. It targets a wide range of users with varying Grid and IT experience. It provides a useful graphical view of the available resources, which can be filtered in order to find specific resources, services or files. Detailed resource requirements for jobs (e.g. required number of CPUs, amount of RAM) can be specified. Users are enabled to design complex scientific workflows that combine several applications to automate the completion of difficult tasks. To this end, a fully-fledged workflow editor is provided. It allows for graphical programming where building blocks like loops or if-statements can be arranged with just a few mouse clicks.
URC can be extended by application specific user interfaces provided as plugins. They are registered as separate applications in this AppDB and can be found in the ”Related Software” tab on the right. The applications suffixed ”-UNICORE” provide the application specific plugins.
