What is the EGI Applications Database (AppDB)?


The EGI Applications Database (AppDB) is a central service that stores and provides to the public, information about:

  • software solutions in the form of native software products and/or virtual appliances,
  • the programmers and the scientists who are involved, and
  • publications derived from the registered solutions

Reusing software products, registered in the AppDB, means that scientists and developers may find a solution that can be directly used on the European Grid Infrastructures without reinventing the wheel. This way, scientists can spend less time developing and/or porting or even reuse a software solution, to the Distributed Computing Infrastrures (DCIs). Thus, AppDB aims to avoid duplication of effort across the DCI communities, and to inspire scientists less familiar with DCI programming and/or usage.
