Light-weight service-oriented grid application toolkit

Sungju Kwon, Jaeyoung Choi, Kumwon Cho
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '06  
Grid has been focused in a distributed computing community. There has been a lot of research in these areas, especially for design and development of Grid middleware.  ...  In this paper, we propose MAGE, Modular and Adaptive Grid Environment, which is uses dynamically reconfigurable component architecture with interfaces.  ...  This means that GridLab can not reconfigure running middleware at runtime. GRIDKIT [10] is a component-based middleware framework for configurable and reconfigurable grid computing.  ...

Object Based Middleware for Grid Computing

Muruganantham
2010 Journal of Computer Science  
Problem statement: "Grid" computing has emerged as an important new field, distinguished from conventional distributed computing by its focus on large-scale resource sharing, innovative applications and  ...  Approach: This study brought out the development of supportive middleware to manage resources and distributed workload across multiple administrative boundaries is of central importance to Grid computing  ...  These four domains of middleware functionality are implemented in Grid toolkit as independent, horizontal, frameworks each of which is highly configurable and reconfigurable (Fig. 1 ).  ...

The Adapta Framework for Building Self-Adaptive Distributed Applications

Marcio Augusto Sekeff Sallem, Francisco Jose da Silva e Silva
2007 Third International Conference on Autonomic and Autonomous Systems (ICAS'07)  
The Adapta framework is a reflective middleware that provides the means to develop self-adaptive component-based distributed applications, separating the business code from the one responsible for adaptation  ...  On a computational Grid, for instance, it is common to notice a high variation on resource availability, node instability, variations on load distribution, and heterogeneity of computational devices and  ...  We are also extending Adapta with inter-component reconfiguration mechanisms, such as component replacement, addition, removal, migration, and replication.  ...
