Standardization - OGF


Job Submission Description Language Working Group


The JSDL-WG has produced a language specification that describes the requirements of jobs for submission to Grids. JSDL 1.0 (published as GGF recommendation GFD.056) is an XML-based language that focuses mainly on computational jobs. The JSDL-WG is working on extending this language to address a wider class of jobs.

This group works on standards.
