Towards a Grid Platform for Scientific Workflows Management

Abstract : Workflow management systems allow the users to develop complex applications at a higher level, by orchestrating functional components without handling the implementation details. Although a wide range of workflow engines are developed in enterprise environments, the open source engines available for scientific applications lack some functionalities or are too difficult to use for non-specialists. Our purpose is to develop a workflow management platform for distributed systems, that will provide features like an intuitive way to describe workflows, efficient data handling mechanisms and flexible fault tolerance support. We introduce here an architectural model for the workflow platform, based on the ActiveBPEL workflow engine, which we propose to augment with an additional set of components.
