Abstract
A challenge for Grid computing is the difficulty in developing software that is parallel, distributed and highly dynamic. In this presentation we will discuss the challenges of providing a new Grid system by combining the workflow system Kepler with a large scale Grid middleware application called Nimrod. The Kepler project provides a workflow environment with various tools to access Grid services. The Nimrod toolkit offers Grid services such as multi-resource meta-scheduling, data movement and parameter search and analysis tools. We will discuss how grid applications and their data files are represented in Nimrod/K and how we have extended the Kepler environment to support threading. Combining these two Grid applications offers a powerful environment for performing large scale Grid base workflows.
