UC Grid Broker Web Service

Currently, the only way to use UGP is through the web browser. To extend the service of UGP to accommodate the scientific workflow, we need components that could be accessed by other software or services. UC Grid Broker Web Service will create a Service Oriented Architecture in UGP. Any client which presents a valid credential will be able to access this service. This service dispatches the jobs to a UC Grid resource pool or any user-defined clusters for executing their code. This service will maintain and update the states for parallel or serial jobs.

Therefore, not only the user is able to access UC Grid resource through the browser, but also through the command line console, other mashup applications etc.
