Grid is a research area, where many research communities have been working and significant results are produced in design and implementation of different computational, data-intensive, and service-oriented grid systems. However, most promising issues such as component-based application design and QoS management have received little attention. Especially in case of real-time grid QoS-sensitive applications, it is difficult to specify and satisfy QoS requirements. This position paper proposes QoS-aware component based architecture for building grid applications.
