Python Core

From Globus

Python Core is a Globus project that produces core Python runtime technologies for development of non-WS and WS Grid services and clients. The Python Core projects are contributed to the Globus Toolkit distribution.

pyGridWare (Python WS Core) is an implementation of the Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF), the Web Service Notification (WSN) family of standards, and WS security technology.

pyGsi is a GSI library (incomplete) and contains analogous Python tools for grid-proxy-init, grid-proxy-info, etc.

pyGlobus is a Python interface to the Globus toolkit. [SWIG] is used to generate the necessary interface code.
