Grid portal are emerging as convenient mechanisms for providing the friendly access interface to grid resource, consistent accessing pattern and easy usage of the grid services, to solve the complexity in using grid computing resources. We describe our experience in building a Web based computational grid portal, named WebCom. In the design and implementation, several features the grid portal needed such as security, system transparency, ease of use, flexibility, adaptability, and completeness are taken into consideration. Finally, we test the WebCom in the campus computational grid testbed of the Xian Jiaotong Univ. and evaluate and compare the WebCom with other grid portal projects.
