The CREAM (Computing Resource Execution And Management) Service is a simple, lightweight service that implements all the operations at the Computing Element (CE) level; its well-defined WebService-based interface and its implementation as an extension of the Java-Axis servlet (running inside the Apache Tomcat container) provide interoperability with clients written in any programming language and running on any computer platform.
The CREAM interface is well-defined using the Web Service Description Language (WSDL); anyone can generate his/her CREAM client by simply filling in the stub code generated by WSDL parser (gSOAP for C/C++, Axis for Java, Perl module for perl).
