Overview: This research paper from University of Florida discusses a scalable approach to the enabling of legacy scientific applications on computing Grids using a service-oriented architecture. As per of this paper Grid enabling means turning an existing application, installed on a Grid resource, into a service and generating the application-specific user interfaces to use that application through a web portal. Scalability is achieved by providing a common abstraction for a category of applications and providing a generic application service to wrap those applications as services. The focus of this papers approach is on Grid-enabling command-oriented scientific applications.
