BES Interface for GridWay

This component enables the remote access to GridWay's metascheduling capabilities through a BES interface, allowing users to access services provided by different grid middlewares. The BES implementation of GridSAM is used for this purpose.

This component is based on a GridWay DRMAA Connector for GridSAM that enables the interoperable submission and control of jobs by means of its BES interface. Communication between the connector and a GridWay instance is based on the Java DRMAA binding of GridWay, which acts as the local GridWay interface.
