Access Grid User Documentation
With the launch of the new accessgrid.org portal, the AGDP has ceased to
operate as a separate entity.
Since the AGDP documents are still a valuable resource, we plan to leave the site essentially intact for the time
being. Most of the documents on this site carry open-source licenses, therefore making anyone free to update them,
modify them, and post on the portal or anywhere else they find appropriate, provided that the license/copyright policies
of that site aren't in conflict. Some of these documents have already been added to the portal. (A prominent exception
is the AG Training Project tutorials; these tutorials will remain available in their WebCT form, and I have linked to them
from the new accessgrid.org portal; however, they are not licensed for free re-distribution.) AGDP authors and contributors
are encouraged to contribute materials to the new portal.
The documentation below is intended for user of AG Toolkit 2.x. An additional page is available with AG Toolkit 1.x documentation for archival purposes.
In addition, Access Grid Toolkit 2.x design, architecture, and some user documents for 2.x are currently available on the Access Grid Research web site. Many useful documents and tutorials can also be found on the new user portal, AG Central.
