Summary of RISC Contribution in JRA1 WP of the SCIEnce Project
Here we report the outcome of our activity in the frame JRA1 Work Package of the SCIEnce project supported
by the European Commission Framework 6 Programme.
The work in this project is centered around SCSCP protocol
which is a remote procedure call framework, in which both protocol messages and data are encoded in the
By SCSCP some computer algebra systems may offer services and some others may employ them.
The RISC institute took part with 8.8 Man-Months
in the activity of JRA1:
- In the first 2.2 Man-Months, we studied, deployed and tested the preliminary, proof-concept
versions of the software packages (SymGrid-Par, SymGrid-Services) developed in the frame of the JRA1. We
then gave our feedback to the developer groups.
Furthermore, we searched for and discussed the possible target applications for these software platforms.
- In the next 4.7 Man-Months, we developed a software package called
SCSCP4Mathematica which supports the
usage of OpenMath and SCSCP from the scientific software Mathematica of Wolfram Research.
To demonstrate the capability and the effectiveness of our new SCSCP4Mathematica software package, we developed a small distributed application
in Mathematica based on the remote procedure call functionality of the SCSCP
protocol and analyzed its performance in some test cases.
- In the last 1.9 Man-Months, we studied, deployed and test the final version of the SymGrid-Service software framework (developed in the frame of the SCIEnce
project as well by the eAustria institute) at the environment of the RISC
institute and finally we integrated it with Mathematica (though there are still some unresolved technical issues with this procedure).
