Grids programming with components: an advanced component platform for an effective invisible Grid

Keywords:
Grid, Grid programming, Grid Component model, Component based framework

Abstract:
GriCOMP's main goal is the design and implementation of a component based framework suitable to support the development of efficient grid applications. The framework will implement a kind of "invisible grid" concept as it will properly abstract all those specific grid related implementations details that usually require high programming efforts to be dealt with.
