Abstract

This paper presents an approach to integrating mobility into the originally static grid environment. The mobile agent paradigm has been exploited in order to facilitate the migration of grid services. The approach presented here separates each mobile grid service in a static part and a mobile part that can dynamically migrate across grid nodes as appropriate. In order to enable this approach, a framework based on a novel mobile agent system is proposed. The components of the framework consist exclusively of grid services conforming to the Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF) standards. The framework provides mechanisms to seamlessly integrate mobile agents and stateful grid services.
