Important Note: Tutorial sessions M01 and S16 are identical tutorials. The same tutorial is being offered on both Sunday and Monday to accommodate the enormous interest in this subject.

Abstract: This full-day tutorial is designed to teach developers how to build a Grid Service that is compliant with the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) Specification using the Globus Toolkit(R) 3 (GT3). The OGSI Specification is a community standard published by the Global Grid Forum that is expected to form the architectural foundation of next-generation Grid Computing. GT3 is the latest toolkit distribution from the Globus Project, which produces open source middleware used in building grids around the world.

The session begins with an introduction to the key concepts that define a Grid Service, including a tour of the OGSI Specification. The second section focuses on GT3, providing an overview of its architecture and functionality. The tutorial concludes with hands-on exercises in which attendees learn how to build, host and interact with an OGSI-Compliant Grid Service.

This tutorial is geared toward developers and technical managers who want to learn about the latest release of the Globus Toolkit and how to apply fundamental concepts outlined in the Open Grid Services Infrastructure Specification. In order to participate, attendees are required to bring a SC2003-network-enabled laptop to the tutorial. Tutorial participants will be expected to bring their own wireless-enabled laptops pre-loaded with a small set of open-source software. There will be no support available to debug problems with attendee laptops. A list of prerequisites for the tutorial is published at:

Note: Due to the intensive and cumulative nature of the hands-on portion of this tutorial it may not be possible for you to participate fully if you come in well after the tutorial has begun. If you do come in late you will be welcome to observe but there will be limited hands-on support for attendees who enter long after the tutorial has started.

Attendees must be able to run all the software listed in the prerequisites in order to participate in the hands-on portion of the tutorial.
