Abstract: Common approaches to implementing Grid schedulers usually rely directly on relatively low-level protocols and services, to benefit from better performances by having full control of file and network usage patterns. Following this approach, the schedulers are bound to particular network protocols, communication patterns and persistence layers. With the availability of standardized high-level application hosting environments providing a level of abstraction between the application and the resources and protocols it uses, we present the design and the implementation necessary to build a Java-based, protocol agnostic, scheduler for Grid applications using commodity services for messaging and persistence. We present how it can be deployed following two different strategies, either as a scheduler for a campus grid, or over a wide-area network grid.
