Enabling scientists to use remote distributed infrastructures, parametrizeand execute common science-domain applications transparently is actual anda highly relevant ﬁeld of distributed computing. For this purpose a general so-lution is the concept of Science Gateways. WS-PGRADE/gUSE system oﬀersa transparent and web-based interface to access distributed resources (grids,clusters or clouds), extended by a powerful generic purpose workﬂow editorand enactment system, which can be used to compose scientiﬁc applicationsinto data-ﬂow based workﬂow structures. It’s a generic web-based portal so-lution to organize scientiﬁc applications in a workﬂow structure and executethem on remote computational resources. As the portal deﬁnes nodes as black-box applications uploaded by the users, it does not provide any applicationspeciﬁc interface by default. In this paper we show what kind of tools, APIsand interfaces are available in WS-PGRADE/gUSE to customize it to have anapplication speciﬁc gateway.
