Web Services Framework
Conrad Steenberg
July 11, 2005


The Clarens Web Services Framework provides a specification for writing flexible Grid-enabled web services using standard protocols and tools. A reference implementation using Apache and mod_python is actively developed and maintained, while a Java/Tomcat version is being developed. A standalone Python server implementation is also available. Clients for C++, Java, Python, and JavaScript have been implemented. Clients have been integrated into the ROOT analysis framework, the Iguana CMS visualization package, and Java Analysis Studio on the IPAQ PDA.
