Abstract
Scientific applications often involve computation
intensive workflows and may generate large amount of
derived data. In this paper we consider a life cycle,
which starts when the data is first generated, and
tracks its progress through replication, distribution,
deletion and possible re-computation. We describe the
design and implementation of an infrastructure, called
Active Data, which combines existing Grid middleware
to support the scientific data lifecycle in a platform-
neutral environment.
