A JADE Middleware for Grid Inter-Cooperated Infrastructures
During the past few years much effort has been put into developing interoperable grid models suitable of defining a decentralized control setting. Such environments may define new rules and actions to internal Virtual Organisation (VO) members and therefore posing new challenges towards to an extended cooperation model of grids. Particularly, VO members' knowledge may be expressed in the form of intelligent agents thus providing a more autonomous solution of communicating members. Herein, the authors present a mobile agent middleware for Grid interoperable infrastructures. Facing the enlarging scale of Grid, the proposed middleware aims to extend the knowledge of a specific neighbouring of Grid members (VO) in relation to the addresses and the physical resources of known and unknown nodes which may join the Grid VO.
