Subject Re: jGlobus 2.0 sandbox project
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2012 14:55:53 GMT
Hi All,

The grid-tools sandbox area is working well for experimental stuff. I would like add clients
to talk to clusters work load managers like MOAB to further explore. For now I will create
a stand alone example, if it works well, I will start a discussion on if we can add it as
a provider to GFac. For now, its just a FYI.
