Grid computing

I have a special fascination for Grid Computing. Today i got my first chance to architect one grid application. I'm currently researching Globus toolkit among others.

Another choice is to use common open source infrastructure such as ActiveMQ with a JMS Classloader. I built a proof of concept, publishing "grid work" into a JMS topic, and several dumb clients "listening" for tasks. When the task arrives to the client; with the help of a custom classloader it downloads the java class bytecode of the task. TADA instant mobile code.

This enables all our company servers to have this dumb client and process grid work when idle.
