Welcome to Ninf Home Page
Ninf is a Japanese project developing programming middleware which enables users to access various resources such as hardware, software and scientific data on the Grid with an easy-to-use interface.
Ninf-G is an open source software which supports development and execution of Grid-enabled applications using Grid Remote Procedure Call (GridRPC) on distributed computing resources.

About Ninf-G
Ninf-G is a reference implementation of Grid RPC system using the Globus Toolkit. Ninf-G provides Grid RPC APIs which are discussed for the standardization at the Grid Remote Procedure Call Working Group of the Global Grid Forum. As of September 26, 2005, the GridRPC API is published as a proposed recommendation (GFD-R.P 52).
A part of the development of Ninf-G2 was supported by a grant from the Ministry of Education, Sports, Culture, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan through the NAREGI (National Research Grid Initiative) Project.
Partial support for the integration of Ninf-G into NMI comes from the National Science Foundation awards SCI-0505520 and INT-0314015 (PRAGMA).
