Features Introduces production-style Grid portals before covering what happens behind the portal, such as job submission and scheduling, security, and Grid infrastructure Explores user-friendly interfaces and Grid-enabling applications Includes related material, such as networking basics, Linux/Windows command-line interfaces, and a Globus installation tutorial, in the appendices Pedagogical Features Provides the first practical, classroom-tested Grid computing textbook for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students Contains programming assignments and multiple-choice questions and answers Offers ancillary resources on the author’s Web site This text was based on the author’s innovative course at UNC–Charlotte. For more information about the course, check out articles in Science Grid This Week www.interactions.org/sgtw/2005/1214/ and International Science Grid This Week www.isgtw.org/?pid=1000945 as well the course Web site www.cs.uncc.edu/~abw/gridcourse/ Designed for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students, Grid Computing: Techniques and Applications shows professors how to teach this subject in a practical way. Extensively classroom-tested, it covers job submission and scheduling, Grid security, Grid computing services and software tools, graphical user interfaces, workflow editors, and Grid-enabling applications. The book begins with an introduction that discusses the use of a Grid computing Web-based portal. It then examines the underlying action of job submission using a command-line interface and the use of a job scheduler. After describing both general Internet security techniques and specific security mechanisms developed for Grid computing, the author focuses on Web services technologies and how they are adopted for Grid computing. He also discusses the advantages of using a graphical user interface over a command-line interface and presents a graphical workflow editor that enables users to compose sequences of computational tasks visually using a simple drag-and-drop interface. The final chapter explains how to deploy applications on a Grid. The Grid computing platform offers much more than simply running an application at a remote site. It also enables multiple, geographically distributed computers to collectively obtain increased speed and fault tolerance. Illustrating this kind of resource discovery, this practical text encompasses the varied and interconnected aspects of Grid computing, including how to design a system infrastructure and Grid portal.

Supplemental Web Resources
The author’s Web site offers various instructional resources, including slides and links to software for programming assignments. Many of these assignments do not require access to a Grid platform. Instead, the author provides step-by-step instructions for installing open-source software to deploy and test Web and Grid services, a Grid computing workflow editor to design and test workflows, and a Grid computing portal to deploy portlets.
