This article introduces a new way of building enterprise software by leveraging grid computing concepts implemented by the Globus Toolkit version 4 (GT4). GT4 is an open source implementation of the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI). The implementation is intended to serve as a proof of concept for OGSI, and to be used as a reference for other implementations. This article addresses only the GT4 Java core services, which provide a run-time environment capable of hosting grid services written in Java. The run-time environment mediates between the application and the underlying network, and transport protocol engines.
