[kepler-dev] the ability to pause/adjust/restart a workflow

Hi Laura,

I don't understand what the problem is?
Ptolemy has a pause button and the model accepts changes during
runtime.  Do you have a more specific idea what they were looking for?

    Just wanted to report from the Semantic Web User Interaction workshop I jus
    attended as part of the International Semantic Web conference, that someone
    from University of Zurich came up to me after my presentation and
    specifically mentioned Kepler and was quite aware of it.  This was good.
    However, the drawback was that they had decided against using it for their
    needs because it lacks the specific ability to pause/adjust/restart a
    workflow and they said this was critical to their work.  They are
    computational chemists.
    I know I have put that feature on the usability list of useful features for
    scientists as a result of some of my reviews and feedback from our
    scientists at workshops.  And I believe Deana had identified that too befor
    I arrived on the project and maybe some of the rest of you too.  But I just
    wanted to raise this issue again for future consideration.
