Alternative submission format

description

Many users need submit input files to an application specific (e.g. an application to process the struct of a protein). In this cases, there's no source code to send to cluster, but only the datafiles.
 
In the alternative submission format, the user can choice an application already installed in a cluster, or set of clusters, to process his files. After the process, he can view the status and outputs of each job like the normal way.
 
To implement this feature are necessary changes in all components:
  • Deemon needs know what application use if the source code is not present.
  • Guaardian needs a list of each application installed in each cluster.
  • Aangel uses the information given by Guaardian to schedule jobs in the subset of cluster that has the required application.
