Release: OMII Server Release (3.0.0)
OMII provides an open source system that addresses the user requirements of combining ease of installation and use within a secure environment. The OMII release focuses on the needs of distinct yet important stakeholders within Grid computing: the Service Provider and the Client.Grid computing made simple
OMII provides a professional grid infrastructure to support collaborative computing in a secure and accountable manner. We address the needs of administrators by providing a simple to install and manage infrastructure without the usual security worries. We address the needs of service and resource providers by providing a detailed accounting model linked to the authorisation system.Authorisation tied to resource use
Developers can write standard web-services and benefit from the security and authorisation model of the OMII service provider. Users can interact with the OMII grid using either a command line tool or through any application using the supplied Java programming interface.
This release of the OMII Server distribution has been shown to install on a variety of modern 32bit Linux distributions, Mac OSX and various Java environment (JDK).
This release contains two new integrated software components: OGSA-DAI for data access and integration, and support for reliable messaging (through WS-Reliable Messaging and WS-Reliability) from the FIRMS project. There are updates to a UDDI compatible registry from the Grimoires project, a WS-Eventing implementation from the FINS project, and refactored documentation.
This release uses Tomcat 5.0.25 and Axis 1.2.1 to provide the OMII Web Services container.
