Grid services are defined by the current OGSA specification from the Global Grid Forum (GGF), and by a newer series of specifications known as OGSI 1.5. Grid services are built on web services, and as such, depend on a hosting environment such as WebSphere. One the features of stateful grid services is 'service data'. This invention describes a grid services tooling solution which automates the addition of both structured and non-structured service data to a grid service. This promotes grid services by lowering the development costs associated with creating grid services, particularly when based on existing web services or other applications.
