Python Web/Grid Services
Joshua Boverhof, Computer Engineer, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Track: Python
Date: Wednesday, July 28
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Salon H


Web services are programmatic interfaces for communication between applications; the web service standards serve as a base for our Grid service implementation detailed by the Grid Service Specification. This specification defines a set of standard interfaces and behaviors for Grid services. The Python Web Services project consists of implementations for SOAP, WSDL, and XML Schema. It contains tools and interfaces for generating Python bindings and stub code for WSDL and XML Schema. pyGridWare is funded by the Deparment of Energy. It is a Grid services implementation built on top of Python Web Services project. pyGridWare has facilities for doing GSS Secure messaging, delegation, and XML Signatures.

In this session, Boverhof demonstrates how to use the Python Web Service project to quickly create stubs from WSDL, and use a five-line client to send messages to a web service. He'll also show how to setup a secure Grid Service using pyGridWare.
