"Grid computing is becoming more and more attractive for coordinating large-scale heterogeneous resource sharing and problem solving. From the viewpoint of decentralization and interoperability, we add agent layer based on ChinaGrid Support Platform (CGSP) system services. By describing these agent technologies in detail, we prove that agents can be implemented in WSRF specification as a web service resource. It works well to extend the autonomy and interoperability for CGSP system."
