Grid Services Implementation Using Eclipse Environment

Madhuri Vaghsia, Sahista Machchhar, Priyanka Buch


The convergence of Grid computing with Web service leads to the emergence of service oriented Grid. Despite the fact that more and more applications are being developed in the form of standard and custom Grid services, the development of Grid services and client applications lacks tooling support. We address this issue with an Eclipse-based environment for developing, using and managing Grid services and client applications for service-oriented Grid. This paper provides a general introduction of this environment and outlines the functionality and designs of the tools that constitute this environment and implementation of Grid Service which is Migration Service.
