The most important change in gUSE 3.6.4 is to support the job submission by the so called SHIWA Submission Service.
The name SHIWA (SHaring Interoperable Workflows for large-scale scientific simulations on Available DCIs) comes from the FP7 SHIWA project that addresses the challenges of the coarse- and fine-grained workflow interoperability. The project created the SHIWA Simulation Platform that enables users to create and run embedded workflows which incorporate workflows of different workflow systems. The platform consists of the SHIWA Science Gateway and the SHIWA VO.
In the new development, the web service based SHIWA Submission Service replaces the old GT4-based GEMLCA Service and enables execution of different workflows from different communities developed in different workflow engines. Therefore you can use various workflows from various communities developed in various engines. All of these workflows are stored in a central workflow repository (called SHIWA Workflow Repository). These stored workflows you can explore by more tools: among others the WS-PGRADE offers for workflow browsing a runtime built-in look up tool, the SHIWA Explorer.
Having the SHIWA Submission Service, you can execute non-native workflows in a more reliable and secure way than with the GEMLCA Service.
