Geoffrey C. Hulette, Matthew J. Sottile, Allen D. Malony: WOOL: A Workflow Programming Language. eScience 2008: 71-78


Workflows offer scientists a simple but flexible programming model at a level of abstraction closer to the domain-specific activities that they seek to perform. However, languages for describing work- flows tend to be highly complex, or specialized towards a particular domain, or both. WOOL is an abstract workflow language with human-readable syntax, intuitive semantics, and a powerful abstract type system. WOOL workflows can be targeted to almost any kind of runtime system supporting data-flow computation. This paper describes the design of the WOOL language and the implementation of its compiler, along with a simple example runtime. We demonstrate its use in an imageprocessing workflow.
