The DRMAA Working Group Charter
The DRMAA working group deliverables are intended to facilitate the development of portable application programs and high-level libraries.
DRM system vendors can provide a standardized access to their product through a DRMAA implementation. High-level API designers, meta-scheduler architects and end users can rely on such DRMAA implementations for a unified access to execution resources.
The scope of the API standardization is focused on job submission, job control, reservation management, and retrieval of job and machine monitoring information.
DRMAA v.2 - The Current Version
If you want to create your own DRMAA library, this is the best thing to use. You can start with our reference mock implementation.
DRMAA v.2 is not backward compatible to DRMAA v.1, but the concepts are very similar. It should be easy to port existing applications and DRMAA implementations.
DRMAA v.1 - Deprecated, Deployed and Available
