One of the biggest challenges in using grid for scientific computing is the complexity of the environment. The goal of GridJM is to make large, heterogeneous and distributed computing infrastructure running the Advanced Resource Connector (ARC), being developed at the www.nordugrid.org forum, conveniently available to its users. GridJM tries to achieve this by automating many of the tasks which would otherwise lay on the users. GridJM is a grid job manager for executing parallel computations using ARC middleware. The basic ARC tools allow user to submit jobs to computational grids, but they lack on features to manage the job lifecycle from the submit command to retrieving the results of a successfully completed job. To make grid computing easier, GridJM provides a layer of job management services on top of ARC tools. These services include for example: babysitting (monitoring the progress) of jobs, re-submitting failed jobs, and automatic results retrieval.
