Abstract: The Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) defines a standard set of facilities which allow the creation of wide area distributed computing applications, i.e. applications which cross organisational and administrative boundaries. A number of projects have demonstrated significant potential for OGSI to support applications, such as ubiquitous and mobile computing applications, which require the integration of devices which are wirelessly and therefore only intermittently connected to the fixed network. However, OGSI currently assumes the availability of a permanent network connection between client and service. This paper identifies a number of requirements specific to the use of OGSI in intermittently available network environments. Building on earlier work to provide reliable invocation delivery between intermittently connected and permanently connected clients and services, this paper addresses these OGSI specific requirements. A prototype framework has been implemented and tested to demonstrate the viability of the approach.
