> Upgrade JGlobus version to 2.0.6-RC2
> ------------------------------------
>                 Key: AIRAVATA-883
>                 URL:
>             Project: Airavata
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: GFac
>         Environment: Unix/Linux
>            Reporter: Amila Jayasekara
>            Assignee: Amila Jayasekara
>             Fix For: 0.9
> With the upgrade I am also planning to introduce following functionalities at GFac level.
> 1. Recovery mechanisms at GFac level 
>           a. Two phase commit
>           b. Resuming Job monitoring after Airavata restarts
> 2. Job cancellation at GFac API level
> Some of the FAQs are answered below;
> a. Why upgrade ?
> We had been using cog-jglobus 1.8.0 for grid communication. This is a fairly old library
and some of the functionalities are not supported. (E.g:- TLS communication, SHA2 support,
Support to handle X509Certificates using Java objects)
> b. Why "RC2" ?
> We have tested 2.0.6-RC2 against functionalities we use within GFac. You may find these
test cases in [2]. 
> c. What are the areas tested ?
> Tests cover, myproxy operations, file transfer operations and job submission. Further
these tests were ran against trestles, lonestar and stampede providers.
> d. From where we going to pick 2.0.6-RC2 jars ?
> Since 2.0.6-RC2 is not yet released we will add these jars as file system repo to trunk.
Plan is to get JGlobus 2.0.6 release out before 0.9 release.
> Comments/objections/concerns welcome.
