Title Using User Driven Dynamic Grid Services to Integrate New Users and Old Systems in e-Science Facilities
Abstract The paper builds on the initial investigations in the Business Data Integration Framework for the Small-to-Medium Enterprise (BDIFS) project into using Grid Services to build dynamic eBusiness integration environments. The concept of sharing user-driven translation mappings in dynamic grid service environments is introduced. These translations provide the mapping between the source and target system and when combined with dynamic Grid Services in BDIFS, they are presented as remotely hosted services for facilities to use. The translations that the services provide are created via a tool which allows users to create the new translation mappings. This separation from basic service functionality and more specific translation functionality allows a bank of translations to be built up to fit a generic service invocation model. In this paper we demonstrate that for eScience facilities this provides a new approach to integrating temporary users of facilities with the data that the users create.
