It's not an issue in the tmp dir but in the job_working_directory. I run most 
of those other tools with no problems. I don't think we should make it a 
requirement across the board and I think we can come up with alternative ways 
to clean up the job_working_directory. I am hoping that you could add the 
symlink to the cuffcompare wrapper as it is the only one where the symlink 
causes me a problem as far as I have tested. We don't want to have our code 
base differ to much from galaxy-central.

Thanks,

Ilya

Ilya,

A search of the Galaxy codebase indicates that thirteen tools use symlinks 
(e.g. GATK, Sicer, Picard, Cuff*, Bowtie), so the changes required to support 
this new code are significant. (Changes would also likely be needed for tools 
in the tool shed.) Also, asking tool wrappers to delete symlinks would be an 
idiosyncratic requirement as tools assume they have a temporary working 
directory at their disposal.

For these reasons, it seems best to have the tool framework clean up symlinks 
as necessary to support the new code.

Best,
J.

Ok, I figured out why you need the symlink.

Can you add an unlink after the process completes?
i.e

for i, arg in enumerate( args ):
            input_file_name = "./input%i" % ( i+1 )
            os.unlink(input_file_name)

Hi Jeremy,

The symlink in the cuffcompare wrapper was causing galaxy to crash because I 
run as the actual user and have to chmod the job_working directory at the end 
so Galaxy can clean it up. Turns out is seems like the symlink is not needed. 
Am I missing something. See below.

Your code:
for i, arg in enumerate( args ):
        input_file_name = "./input%i" % ( i+1 )
        os.symlink( arg, input_file_name )
        cmd += "%s " % input_file_name

My code:
for i, arg in enumerate( args ):
        cmd += arg
