> Airavata's GFac enables users to wrap as web services and then use XBaya to drag and
drop those components to a workspace and define data flow and control flow dependencies among
the application nodes. Airavata's workflow system is used for composing, executing, and monitoring
workflow graphs of web service components. The workflow description is high level abstraction
and is converted to lower level execution run times like BPEL, SCUFL and Python scripts. 
> Amazon Simple Workflow Service (Amazon SWF) is a newly launched workflow service from
Amazon. This service is of interest to Airavata user community to execute coupled applications
on Amazon cloud computational resources. 
> Extend Airavata workflow execution to support Amazon SWF will enhance the capabilities
provided by Airavata. The airavata developer community will provide detailed guidance and
> There is extensive literature about Airavata WS Messenger including 4 research papers.
The Airavata community will provide guidance and assistance with the project. 
> User community & Impact of the software: Airavata is primarily targeted to build
science gateways using computational resources from various disciplines. The initial targeted
set of gateways include projects supporting research and education in chemistry, life sciences,
biophysics, environmental sciences, geosciences astronomy and nuclear physics. The goal of
airavata is to enhance productivity of these gateways to utilize cyberinfrastructure of resources
(e.g., local lab resources, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE),
the Open Science Grid (OSG), University Clusters, Academic and Commercial Computational Clouds
like FutureGrid & Amazon EC2). By using open community based software components and services
like Airavata, gateways will be able to focus on providing additional scientific capabilities
and to expanding the number of supported users. The capabilities of these gateways will offer
clear benefits to society.
