Computational Science Technical Note CSTN-019


Web Services for Remote Management of Scientific Simulations

K. A. Hawick and H. A. James

Archived March 2005


We describe a web services system for managing scientific simulation metadata. We show how the use of an appropriate data model based on sets can help define operations to specify; filter; reduce or expand against a set of simulation jobs, parameter values or even filenames. We describe a Java-based implementation of our ideas and discuss its implications for remotely managing and monitoring large scale scientific simulations on parallel and cluster compute systems in a grid environment.

Keywords: service-oriented architectures; metadata; scientific simulation.
