Worqbench: An Integrated Framework for e-Science Application Development

Tue 12.12.2006, 15:30, 60 minutes


With the proliferation of Grid computing, potentially vast computational resources are available for solving complex problems in science and engineering. However, writing, deploying, and testing e-Science applications over highly heterogeneous and distributed infrastructure are complex and error prone. Further complicating matters, programmers may need to target a variety of different Grid middleware packages. This paper presents the design and implementation of Worqbench, an integrated, modular and middleware neutral framework for e-Science application development on the Grid. Worqbench can be incorporated into a number of existing Integrated Development Environments, further leveraging the advantages of such systems. We illustrate one such implementation in the Eclipse environment.


Donny Kurniawan started his PhD under the supervision of Professor David Abramson. His PhD project is the development of Grid programming support in an Integrated Development Environment such as Eclipse. His current interests are in: extensible Integrated Development Environment (IDE), debugging techniques in parallel & Grid environments, and remote application development.
