Using Web Services to Build Grid Applications - The "No Risk" WSGAF Profile (2004)

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

    Abstract: This document presents design pattern recommendations for building Grid applications based on the principles of service orientation and using existing Web Services technologies. The design pat-tern described in this document is a subset of the Web Services Grid Application Framework (WS-GAF) approach to building Grid applications since it only focuses on the use of the Web Services Interoperability Basic Profile 1.0a and WS-Security. Issues of stateful interactions, logical re-source naming, metadata, security, and lifetime management are addressed.
