I think we had some discussions last year already at the EclipseSummit
Europe, but I might be totally wrong...
If there is a potential for synergies, it would be great to evaluate and
The goal of g-Eclipse is to deliver a general platform for existing
Grids indepedent of the underlying Grid middleware. So we did not limit
ourselves to WSRF compliant Grids. Therefore our approach is a little
bit wider. But anyhow, I agree that the use of emerging standards (like
WSRF and WS-DM) can help in this context.

So up to now, WSRF was not in our implementation plan, but now, we
started with the prove of the middleware independence of our framework
with a second middleware (called GRIA (www.gria.org)). And this
middleware is following the WSRF guidelines/standards. So there might be
a opportunity for the collaboration in the future.
About "low hanging fruits": Well, perhaps you had a look to the webinar
of g-Eclipse ( http://live.eclipse.org/node/354 ). There you can get the
first impression about our framework.
Does the COSMOS project has something similar?

Good thought you had. Luckily, I was able to hear them over the
atlantic. Loud enough! :-))
So yes, let's start to evaluate what we can do together!
I hope to have a closer look to COSMOS over the weekend!
