Distributed Tool Services via the World Wide Web

Dossick, Stephen E.; Kaiser, Gail E.; Yang, Jack Jingshuang

We present an architecture for a distributed tool service which operates over HTTP, the underlying protocol of the World Wide Web. This allows unmodified Web browsers to request tool executions from the server as well as making integration with existing systems easier. We describe Rivendell, a prototype implementation of the architecture.
