And There Was Much Rejoicing!

Whoohoo! The Open Grid Forum has finally accepted the Distributed Resource Management Application API (otherwise known as DRMAA, pronounced like "drama") as a formal recommendation! Along with the GridRPC standard, we are the first recommendations to come from the OGF.
In case you weren't aware, Grid Engine comes with binding for DRMAA in both C and the Java language. In addition, you can download bindings for Perl, Python, and Ruby. If you want to know more about how DRMAA works, dig around in the Grid category of my blog. I have a bunch of DRMAA articles.
