For the record, DRMAA is Distributed Resource Management Application
API. It a standard API that Grid Engine offers for submitting,
monitoring, and controlling jobs. The blog post I sent has DRMAA in the
title, but it's really just a quickie guide to getting a test Grid
Engine installation running.
That said, just go download the binaries. :) Grid Engine may be open
source, but it's also a product from Sun. Customers tend not to like to
be forced to build the products themselves. ;)
