The cern developed grid interface software Ganga can be installed in your home area on AFS. It means submitting to the grid without knowing the particular edg-type commands. And gives an easy way of keeping track of submitted, pending, failed, completed jobs. Allows resubmission and copy/edit of the job specs.
It can be used to create jdl files themselves.
And there's even a GUI...
I have used it to submit and monitor jobs which run "custom" software (wget, link to afs, tar -zxvf, ./configure etc), i.e. not big experiment monte-carlo, however Ganga has been developed with ATLAS in mind.
