Subject RE: Questions about Custom Application Registration and Complex Input/Output Data
Date Thu, 13 Nov 2014 14:21:32 GMT
Hi Suresh and Everyone,
I have another question to add to my previous meanwhile,
what do sshTokenId and gsisshTokenId mean (into launchExperiment method)? In the samples are
hard-coded values.. are they really influent? At least using localhost as computeHost it's
unnecessary to use/generate them right?

Thanks again,

a certain language (let's assume python or C++) which takes some string as launching arguments,

during it's process. I want to generate an interface application on airavata of that application.
My questions are:

which I'm creating? it's always what happens comes with the stout of the system or there is
a specific procedure to follow into MyApp or before create the registration script?

complex object (not simple object such as string or int but more or less complex structures)
wow can translate that into the airavata Interface? .Is it supported? Do I need to register
class/structure on apache thrift server and use the thrift-generates interfaces directly into
my application in order to associate a possible airavata OutputDataObjectType?
