Abstract

Grid Execution Management for Legacy Code Architecture (GEMLCA) is a general architecture to deploy existing legacy applications as Grid services without re-engineering the original code. Using GEMLCA from the P-Grade portal, legacy code programs can be accessed as Grid services and even participate in complex Grid workflows. The parallel version of MadCity, a discrete time-based traffic simulator, was created using P-Grade. This paper describes how MadCity is offered as a Grid service using GEMLCA and how this solution is embedded into the P-Grade portal.
