Abstract

Coordination of global knowledge is needed to advance the computational and computer science needed for nuclear research. We have been conducting cooperative international research in various fields to construct a highly-secure worldwide network computing infrastructure, based on the Atomic Energy Grid Infrastructure (AEGIS). A promising way to achieve this is to establish interoperation using AEGIS with other grids. The operation of existing grid environments that allow the continuous development and execution of user applications is critical. To achieve the interoperability while maintaining operations, we have developed a system that converts messages among different grid middlewares without requiring modification of grid middlewares. To realize interoperability with two or more grid middlewares in the present study, we have defined the application programming interface (API) as a common interface to convert messages among the grid middlewares. We have applied our system to three interoperable environments. Through these experiments, we have confirmed that our system is applicable to the construction of interoperable environments among various grid middlewares.
