Re: [Condor-users] Accessing locally installed applications from Condor

Hello Navonil,

You should be able to run installed applications.  You may have to take care of environment (like %PATH%).

You may want to first try running your java application anywhere and then splitting the job.  What this means is - without splitting your application into work units, submit a job such that the whole application runs good on a host different from the submit host.  Once this is running good, you can proceed with splitting your application.  This is the approach that we found very useful.

Dear Condor users
I have programs in Java which interfaces with applications installed in a local
machines (example, Excel). I use Java Naive Interface to make COM calls from
my Java application. Currently I am using my own middleware to dispatch work
to idle resources and to collate the results.
I would like to know whether it is possible for Condor to do the same. I mean, can
it have access to locally installed applications or does it run in a sandbox? What
I would ideally like to do is to write a program which reads a parameter file, divides
it into well-defined work units and submits jobs to condor. Each submitted job would
contain one workunit any my Java application.
Once a resource is claimed by Condor, the Java application will run on the claimed
resource and it will interact with installed applications and send back the result.
Any will be appreciated.
