Abstract: We have created a lightweight (server and client) intuitive command line interface through which users can submit jobs with complex software dependencies. We have added functionality that is specific to BaBar jobs. gsub solves the input/output sandbox issues by the use of a global file system, currently AFS. Alibaba uses Gridsite to keep track of each job and display the status of sites in that grid. gsub and Alibaba together provide a simple, easy-to-use grid submission and monitoring infrastructure that works and is currently being used by students and even professors for Particle Physics Analysis.
