KnowARC UseCase plugin for Taverna 2.1.2

The UseCase service plugin that was developed for Taverna 1.7 as part of the KnowARC project – http://www.http://www.knowarc.eu/ – has now been updated to Taverna 2.1.2 and extended in functionality. The plugin has been written by Hajo Krabbenhöft and Steffen Möller.

The plugin allows users to run tools on a grid, or a remote/local machine using grid or ssh authentication.  At the moment a prototype set of tool descriptions is available.

To install the plugin, go to Advanced -> Updates and plugins in the Workbench, and click “Find new plugins” button.  Tick the UseCase activity box and then install. You’ll need to restart Taverna to see the plugin’s functionality.

Any comments on the plugin are very welcome and can be done either via the plugin or directly on the Taverna Web site at
