Laforenza D. Grid programming: some indications where we are headed. In: Parallel Computing, vol. 28 pp. 1733 - 1752. Elsevier Science Inc, 2002.
Grid computing enables the development of large scientific applications on an unprecedented scale. Grid-aware applications, also called meta-applications or multi-disciplinary applications, make use of coupled computational resources that are not available at a single site. In this light, the Grids let scientists solve larger or new problems by pooling together resources that could not be coupled easily before. It is well known that the programmerís productivity in designing and implementing efficient distributed/parallel applications on high-performance computers is still usually a very time-consuming task. Grid computing makes the situation worse. Consequently, the development of Grid programming environments that would enable programmers to efficiently exploit this technology is an important and hot research issue.After an introduction on the main Grid programming issues, this paper will review the most important approaches/projects conducted in this field worldwide.
