Abstract: The ability to submit jobs to foreign computational resources is a core requirement in Grid Computing. There are many Distributed Resources Managers (DRM) in existence for deploying jobs to Grid Resources. However, they require jobs to be described in propreitary language. The submission interfaces are often restricted solely for human interaction or consumable only through language-specific APIs. In this paper, we demonstrate the use of the widely accepted and standardised Web Service specifications and related technologies to build a Job Submission Web Service (WS-JDML). Leveraging the Job Description Markup Language (JDML), it provides a DRM-neutral input to the submission service, where transformation can take place in order to hide the underlying DRMs. The input and output sandbox abstraction in JDML also allows data transfer mechanism to be described in a generic manner.
