NOTE: gLite installed on an EMI UI needs proxy with X509v3 extensions but it is not supported by the Certificate portlet's "Upload authentication data to MyProxy server" function. You can upload your proxy to a myproxy server for example with the following command: myproxy-init -s myproxy.server.hostname -l MyProxyAccount -c 0 -t 100

gUSE 3.4.1

Released on 14th February 2012.

Collection and visualization of usage statistics. These additions enable users and administrators to retrieve statistics on the portal, user, DCI's, resources, concrete workflows, workflow instances, and individual jobs from the workflow graph.

gUSE 3.4.0

Released on 21st December 2011.

The main improvements in this version:

  • The backend of the gUSE has been replaced by a new uniform service, the DCI Bridge. The job submission backend of gUSE has been replaced by a new service called as DCI Bridge. It replaces the former "Submitters" and serves as a single unified job submission interface that can be accessed via the standard BES interface recommended by OGF. Due to the new DCI Bridge service adding emerging new type of resources (e.g. clouds) will be easier to manage.
  • Job submission to the following new types of resources are supported by the DCI Bridge: UNICORE, GBAC (BOINC with virtualization), GAE (Google App Engine). Currently, DCI Bridge supports the following types of resources: Glite, GT2, GT4, ARC, UNICORE, PBS, LSF, web services, BOINC, GBAC, GAE, GEMLCA, local resources.
  • The new Assertion portlet supports the creation and upload of the certificate like assertion file. The assertion technology is the base authentication and authorization method of the UNICORE middleware used in the D-GRID community.
  • The access to the web services has been reconsidered: While configuring a job as a web service the user gets much more freedom to define the requested web service: The responsibility of using a given web service has been transferred from the portal administrator to the common user.
  • The revision of the user interface has been started. As the beginning of this process the colours of the portlets has been changed, and the appearance of the menus referring the workflow and job configuration have been slightly modified. However the basic functionality has been retained.

gUSE 3.3

Released on 3rd February 2011.

The main improvements in this version:

  • Liferay based WS-PGrade- JSR 168 GS changed to JSR 286 Liferay portlet container.
  • Optimization of the submitter status updates - The more effective and well-documented concurrency API is being used in order to reduce the used resources.
  • New portlet: Internal Services - This is made for configuring gUSE services. Existing service properties can be set or modified, new services can be added, connections between services can be defined, properties can be imported between existing services and the whole system configuration can be downloaded. Texts on the UI are jstl:fmt based with multi lingual support. So the website localization can be much easier.
  • New portlet: Resources - It is for the management of the available resources which could be run. To the supported middleware, resources and resource details can be defined through a special input environment. The portlet uses the opportunities of the new resource service. Texts on the UI are jstl:fmt based which provide multi lingual support so the website localization can be much easier.
  • GAE Cloud support - Google Cloud became a new supported middleware. For that, new configuration interface and a new plugin had been added to the submitter.
  • Configuration interface had been improved for users' request.
  • Unauthorized file access dissolved - Until now the file access went through the web browser without authentication. In this version Liferay uses its own authentication service to make file access safer and only accessible to the entitled users.
  • XSS extinguished - Now our own portlets are protected against malicious HTML and JS inputs.
