Grid is a system that coordinates resources that are not subject to centralized control and provides environment for secure resource sharing through geographically distributed networks. Grid system lacks the autonomy and flexible behaviour. Mobile agents are autonomous programs that live and roam in the distributed environment, sense and act in the environment to achieve the goal. We propose a communication model that integrates both Grid system and Mobile Agent to perform parallel computations

Categories and Subject Descriptors [IBM's Aglets]: An aglet is a mobile agent. All aglets are derived from an abstract class called Aglet. Aglets use an event driven approach to mobile agents that is analogous to the Java library Applet class. Each aglet implements a set of event handler methods that define the aglets behaviour.
