This paper presents a platform that provides developers with a friendly development environment of grid services over Globus Toolkit 3. This platform includes a class of functions for processing parameters inputted from a developer via GUI and a class of functions for generating files required for defining grid services that the developer specifies. As a result, the development of grid services requires less special expert knowledge of a developer, the efficiency of developing grid services can be improved, and Globus Toolkit therefore increases its popularity and is for more practical and wider uses. This paper describes our design ideas, necessary functions, and implementations. The comparisons with other related toolkits are given in the paper.
