A Grid Application Framework based on Web Services Specifications and Practices (2004)

Author(s): Parastatidis S, Webber J, Watson P, Rischbeck T

    Abstract: There has been a lot of discussion in the community concerning the relationship between Web and Grid Services. This document presents an analysis of the Grid architecture and its relationship to the Web Services Architecture. It presents our views on the current version of the OGSI specification and then goes on to propose a different mapping of the Grid infrastructure requirements to Web Services specifications and practices. The aim is to design an alternative mapping that captures the same Grid requirements, but fits more closely with existing Web Services specifications and practices.
