Additional file 1:

Sample script demonstrating the invocation of an XMPP service. This script demonstrates the synchronous (blocking) API of xws4j used from the Bioclipse javascript environment. The invoked function (calculateMass) finishes within seconds.

Additional file 2:

Sample script demonstrating the simple invocation of a time-consuming XMPP service. This script demonstrates the listener-based asynchronous API of xws4j used from the Bioclipse javascript environment. It may take several minutes to complete.

Additional file 3:

Sample script demonstrating the invocation of a time-consuming XMPP service. This script demonstrates the listener-based asynchronous API of xws4j used from the Bioclipse javascript environment. It may take several minutes to complete. With the session ID returned from the service (see onExecuting() in the listener) one may check the status or terminate the remote process.

Additional file 4:

Sample script demonstrating the abortion of a time-consuming XMPP service. This script demonstrates how to continue/pick and terminate the blast that was initially invoked with the script 'invokeblast.js' (see Additional file 3). To pick an existing remote process its session ID must be specified.
