Several large-scale Grid infrastructures are currently in operation around the world, federating an impressive collection of computational resources, a wide variety of application software, and hundreds of user communities. To better serve the current and prospective users of Grid infrastructures, it is important to develop advanced software retrieval services that could help users locate software components suitable to their needs. In this paper, the authors present the design and implementation of Minersoft, a distributed, multi-threaded harvester for application software components that are suitable for their computational needs.
