Subject Re: Upgrading JGlobus version 2.0.6-RC2
Date Sun, 11 Aug 2013 14:48:41 GMT
Hi Amila,

When you were upgrading JGlobus to 2.0.6, did you run into issues with XSUL dependencies?
 In other words, there were quite a few places where JGlobus dependency was there with Airavata
modules, from what I can see, you seem to have fixed all these and now only limited to GFac,
want to confirm it. 

Also, I am trying to make a new XSUL release independent of JGlobus. So that means HTPPS invokers
with GSI Security will not work. AFAIK, none of this code is in use within Airavata trunk.
Do you see any potential issues with this change?
