Grid enabled portals are becoming increasingly popular as a platform for providing access to Grid services and resources. Unfortunately, much of the work done in portal development has led to vertically layered solutions that work for a particular project but are difficult to extend or reuse for other projects. The Grid-Sphere portal framework seeks to(More)
Grid Portals, based o n standard web technologies, are emerging as important and useful user interfaces to Computational and Data Grids. Grid portals enable Virtual Organizations, comprised of distributed researchers t o collaborate and access resources more efficiently and seamlessly. T h e Astrophysics Simulation Collaboratory (ASC) Grid Portal provides a(More)
Grid technology is widely emerging. Still, there is an eminent shortage of real Grid users, mostly due to the lack of a " critical mass " of widely deployed and reliable higher-level Grid services, tailored to application needs. The GridLab project aims to provide fundamentally new capabilities for applications to exploit the power of Grid computing, thus(More)
Previous investigations have consistently found differential effects of induced moods on the accessibility of personal memories differing in hedonic tone. Findings for effects of retrieval mood on recall of verbal material have been less consistent. This study examined the effect of induced mood on the recall of previously learned personality trait words.(More)
Building Problem Solving environments in the emerging national-scale Computational Grid infrastructure is a challenging task. Accessing advanced Grid services, such as authentication, remote access to computers, resource management , and directory services, is usually not a simple matter for problem solving environment developers. The Commodity Grid project(More)
Grid technology is widely emerging. Still, there is an eminent shortage of real Grid users, due to the absence of two important catalysts: First, a widely accepted vision on how applications can substantially benefit from Grids, and second a toolkit of higher-level Grid services, tailored to application needs. The GridLab project aims to provide(More)
SUMMARY In this paper we report on the features of the Java Commodity Grid Kit. The Java CoG Kit provides middleware for accessing Grid functionality from the Java framework. Java CoG Kit middleware is general enough to design a variety of advanced Grid applications with quite different user requirements. Access to the Grid is established via Globus Toolkit(More)
