Abstract: Grid infrastructures have been used to achieve large-scale compute resource sharing and coordinated problem solving in dynamic multi-institutional Virtual Organizations. However, it is quite challenging to program and use these distributed infrastructures. In recent years, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) using Web services has gained growing attention. SOA has shown its enormous potential because it provides language-neutral service-interfaces that hide the complexity of the implementations. Since most scientific applications are not Web service oriented, and the adaptation of these existing scientific applications to Web services is becoming important along with the emergence of Grid and SOA. In this paper, we present an Application Service Toolkit (ASToolkit), which is a toolkit to wrap scientific applications as Web services. It provides features such as Grid-enabling, WS-Security, data management, and minimum software requirement.
