Standard Grid technologies and the Chromium cluster graphics software are the building blocks of jgViz (Java-implemented Grid Visualization) a Grid-based, distributed graphics pipeline system. Using the Metacomputing Directory Service to discover available resources, jgViz schedules the best graphics pipeline available to suit the OpenGL application being run, launches the pipeline components using the Globus Resource Allocation Manager, and monitors performance. Users interact with the system through a GUI implemented using Java and the Commodity Grid Toolkit, enabling easy access to visualization resources.
