BirdBath is HTCondor's entry into the world of Web Services. Its goal is to augment some of the core HTCondor daemons with Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) interfaces so that they can be queried and controlled through programs other than the standard HTCondor command-line tools. The main interfaces are currently to the Schedd for submitting and querying jobs, and the Collector for accessing information about a HTCondor pool.

Information about configuring HTCondor's SOAP API is available in the HTCondor manual.


As of March 2nd 2005, BirdBath is part of HTCondor. It was in the 6.7 developer series as of 6.7.5, and is part of the 6.8 stable series.
