The Grid Services Base Library (GSBL) is a procedural application programming interface (API) that abstracts many of the high-level functions performed by Globus Grid services, thus dramatically lowering the barriers to writing Grid services. The library has been extensively tested and used for computational biology research in a Globus Toolkit-based Grid system, in which no fewer than twenty Grid services written with this API are deployed.
