This WP8 Activity Report described the activities performed in May 2013 by Beneficiary and Task.

It is part of May 2013 Monthly Activity Report.

T8.1 iMarine Data e-Infrastructure Enabling-technology Development

CNR Activities

  • checking on service version (must be 1.0.0) added in softwaregateway component (#1654)
  • resolved a defect on ResourceManager service: the problem regarded the correct targeting of ghn instance where to deploy a webapp (#1023).


CNR released new version (1.1.3) of:

  • org.gcube.vre-management.softwaregateway
  • org.gcube.vre-management.softwaregateway-stubs

FAO Activities




T8.2 iMarine Data e-Infrastructure Policy-oriented Security Facilities

E-IIS Activities

  • E-IIS collaborated with CNR and CERN on defining the data model for the registration of all resource accounting records. The result of this collaboration is available here
  • E-IIS collaborated with CNR and CERN on defining the requirements for the resource accounting portlet. The result of this collaboration is available here
  • E-IIS has implemented the common-accounting-model library which contains the record definition for all the resource types and will be included both in the common-accounting-lib library and in the accounting sub-system.
  • E-IIS is continuing the common-accounting-lib library implementation, which will be used to publish/consume resource accounting information by the services/accounting sub-system, as reported by the ticket #1582
  • E-IIS is continuing the accounting portlet implementation, following the agreed requirements and making the portlet completely configurable from the point of view of resource types, filters and reports, as reported by the ticket #1631

About AuthN/AuthZ activities ENG has provided support to CERN/CNR on the deployment of secure infrastructure (#1422 and #1505). An analysis of the effort and technological requirements for integrating the login portal to the id-federation infrastructure has been performed (#1747).



T8.3 Workflow Management Facilities

NKUA Activities

During the month of May, we developed a workflow adaptor, that handles the execution of workflows of jobs over a variety of processing infrastructures. The workflow of jobs is first translated to a PE2ng plan, and the execution engine takes over the overall execution. This adaptor takes advantage of the WSDL parser developed previously. We introduced another JDL JobType in order to execute DAGs of jobs submitted to either PE2NG or GRID (#1276).

Moreover, the first results of PE2ng's evaluation in the UMD infrastructure have been collected. However, as described in ticket (#1317), the implementation of the AquaMaps algorithm has to be refactored, in order for the evaluation procedure to continue. Finally, the WorkflowGridAdaptor has been refactored to correctly retrieve the output files of a jdl job, possibly consisting of more than one sub-tasks (#1738).

Furthermore, some addition to operators have been made, in order to support seperation of an input file into records or aggregation of records to a file (#1265). Also, the implementation of the new workflow adaptor, that exploits the new operators has started (#1832).


The following components were released in gCube 2.15.0 with minor changes:

  • org.gcube.execution.RRGCubeBridge.1-4-3
  • org.gcube.execution.WorkflowEngine.1-3-2
  • org.gcube.execution.WorkflowSearchAdaptor.1-3-0
