Brief Abstract: A key component of grid testbeds is a local resource management system (RMS)offering job submission, monitoring and in some cases more advanced reservations features. However, for years RMSs have provided either only proprietary script based interfaces for appli- cation integration or nothing at all, in which case, the command-line interface was used. Consequently, there were no standard mechanisms for programmers to integrate both grid middleware services and applications with local resource management systems. Thanks to Open Grid Forum and its Distributed Resource Management Application API (DRMAA) working group which has released the DRMAA 1.0 specification that offers a standardized API for application integration with C, Java, Perl and Python bindings.
