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 utilized on the European Grid Infrastructures without reinventing the wheel. This way, scientists can spend less or even no time developing or porting a software solution to the Distributed Computing Infrastrures (DCIs). AppDB, thus, aims to avoid duplication of effort across the DCI communities, and to inspire scientists less familiar with DCI programming and usage.
