Web Services for Remote Management of Scientific Simulations

service-oriented architectures; metadata; scientific simula tion.


We describe a web services system for managing scientific simulation metadata. We show how the use of an appro priate data model based on sets can help define operations to specify; filter; reduce or expand against a set of simula tion 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.
