[condor-users] Invoking condor commands from java applications



I want to use Condor to manage large number of jobs generated and monitored by a Java application on a Windows platform. Typically, the java application is an over-all controller generating input sets for Monte Carlo experiments, genetic algorithm based optimalisation etc. The java application must be able to submit  jobs and detect job completion to collect and process the results. Monitoring job progress would be nice to have. Currently I generate submit files, use Java's exec feature to start commands like condor_submit and condor_status and parse their output. It works, but it's not very elegant and somewhat fragile in the long run because it depends on assumptions about the output generated by those commands.


Is there a more direct way for a java application to use the condor commands?
