GDT: A toolkit for grid service development
The inherent complexity of Grid application development is an obstacle to the widespread adoption of service oriented Grid technology. In this paper, a software development environment for service oriented Grid applications integrated into the Eclipse platform is presented. Its design is based on model-driven software development principles, allowing domain experts to rapidly develop Grid applications by hiding the complexities of Grid middleware. The functionality of the three main components supporting service creation, process creation and interactive debugging are presented, and implementation issues is discussed.
