This library is part of a larger project to connect tranSMART to Galaxy, which is made possible by the BioMedBridges and CTMM TraIT projects. tranSMART is a scientific data management system and Galaxy is a web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research.
The goal of this library is to make it easy for tranSMART users to run a workflow in Galaxy. The Workflow Runner library is written in Java and uses the blend4j library for accessing Galaxy servers via the Galaxy API.
We strive to create a group of components that will both be needed for building a specific bridge between tranSMART and Galaxy, and be useful for making bridges between other systems (like for example tranSMART-Molgenis or Molgenis-Galaxy).
For developers, we have a separate page with information on the development tools we use (git, GitHub, Maven, Checkstyle, FindBugs, PMD and CPD): DevelopersInformation.md.
