This tutorial is the second day dedicated to the Grid Component Model (GCM) programming framework of a two-day tutorial on the ProActive parrallel suite featuring the reference implementation of the GCM. The first day presents the key concept of Proactive. Before the tutorial, you are invited to attend the GridCOMP conference, ProActive and GCM User Group, on Tuesday, where several presentations will describe ProActive and GCM features and present various industrial use cases.

The tutorial is located at INRIA Sophia Antipolis, room Fermat vert and Fermat jaune, in the Fermat building

Present in an interactive way the Grid Component Model (GCM). The ProActive middleware for parallel, distributed and multi-threaded computing is used to provide the reference implementation of the GCM (based on the Fractal component model) which was defined in the CoreGRID NoE project and is being implemented in the GridCOMP project. This will be done in the morning through simple examples and exercises using the basic features of the GCM, followed by the presentation of the Grid IDE (GIDE) tool. Next, the GCM autonomic features will explain. At the end, a real use case will be explored in deep showing a real use of the presented GCM features. At the end of the day, participants should be able to develop, to deploy and test a ProActive/GCM application.

The features to be covered include:

  • GCM Deployment (ETSI standard)
  • GCM Components
  • GIDE and IC2D GUI
  • Legacy code Wrapping (using GCM component)
  • GCM Autonomic Management

Participants will have the freedom to choose the features and the applications most significant to them, potentially their application to be solved on the GRID. The number of tutors ensures that each participant will benefit a personal guidance. Full beginners as well as users with a first ProActive or Fractal experience are welcome.

The tutorial attendees can bring a laptop for actually programming and deploying.
