GenApp is a modular framework for multiscale science computations. It enables one to generate web & gui applications from same source.
The benefits of GenApp include:
GenApp provides interfaces in various programming languages which have been integrated with Airavata. This integration has provided GenApp thecapability to run long running, non-interactive jobs on various clusters. Thanks to the integration with airavata, Genapp can harness distributed computing resources including local clusters, supercomputers, national grids, academic and commercial clouds.
The Integration has been achieved using Airavata's thrift based API, which is available in different programming languages. The language interfaces of Genapp integrated with Airavata include PHP/HTML5, C++/Qt3, C++/Qt4. A service has been created which registers all GenApp modules on Airavata with a single command. Airavata PHP and C++ Clients have been developed which make the integration possible, allowing GenApp to submit jobs to Airavata, including creating projects, creating and launching experiments. Besides GenApp also has access to the current status of the launched experiment and automatically processes the output once the the experiment is completed.
