Using the Application Repository
The EDGeS Application Repository is designed to assure the security of the Desktop Grids that run the appliactions stay intact when running jobs that are submitted in another Grid and arrive through the EDGeS Bridge.
There are, in fact two, separate Application Repositories:
Production Application Repository
The Production Application Repository is used to download trusted and validated applications
The applications have to be installed by the Desktop Grid operator. The EDGeS Production Application Repository contains application software bundles that can be downloaded and installed on a desktop grid.
If you are a Service Grid user (an EGEE user) you can dowload the applications from the EDGeS Production Application Repository for local usage.
Test and Validation Application Repository
The Test and Validation Application Repository is intended to be used by application developers that want to test or develop new applications for the Grid infrastructure. Please contact the EDGeS support team if you want to port an application to the Grid.
If you are partner of EDGes, or working with EDGeS already you can continue to the Test and Validation Application Repository .
