Introduction to Grid Computing with the Globus Toolkit Version 3

This session will explore a bit of the history of distributed computing, leading to its newest incarnation called Grid Computing. We then examine the design of the standards-based Open Grid Services Architecture, including its utilization of Web Services and the J2EE model. We finish by constructing Java code and building a running grid in the session room using volunteer laptops with wireless LAN connections.

Java Development and Grid Computing with the Globus Toolkit Version 3

This session dives into the Java programming aspects of building a Grid using the Open Grid Services Architecture and its reference implementation Globus Version 3 toolkit. Server- and client-side code is examined. We finish by constructing a more complex Java grid design and building a running grid in the session room using volunteer laptops with wireless LAN connections. Attendance at the "Introduction to Grid Computing with Globus Version 3" session is recommended unless you have experience with Globus Version 3.
