Abstract
Computational Grids have been proposed as the next
generation computing platform for solving large-scale
problems in science, engineering, and commerce. There is
an enormous amount of interest in applications, called
Grid Workflows in which a number of otherwise
independent programs are run in a "pipeline". In
practice, there are a number of different mechanisms that
can be used to couple the models, ranging from loosely
coupled file based IO to tightly coupled message passing.
In this paper we propose a flexible IO architecture that
provides a wide range of mechanisms for building Grid
Workflows without the need for any source code
modification and without the need to fix them at design
