In this paper, we introduced a framework for experiment management that simplifies the users’ interaction with grid environments by managing a large number of tasks to be conducted as part of the experiment by the individual scientist. Our framework is an extension to the Java CoG Kit. We have developed a client-server approach that allows us to utilize the grid task abstraction of the Java CoG Kit and expose it easily to the experimentalist. Similar to the defintion of standard output and standard error we have defined standard status that allows us to conduct application status notifications. We have tested our tool with a large number of long running experiments and show its usability in practical applications such as bioinformatics.
