GridFTP and Parallel TCP Support in NaradaBrokering
Many of the key features of file transfer mechanisms like reliable file transferring and parallel transferring are developed as part of the service. It makes very hard to re–use the same code for the different systems. We are trying to overcome this disadvantage by decoupling useful features of file transfer mechanisms from the implementation of the service and protocol, and instead placed into the messaging substrate. We may thus treat file transfer operations as a specific usage case for a more general messaging environment. This will allow us to provide file transfer quality of service to other file transfer tools that does not have same features.
