The convergence of grid computing technologies and Web services offers many opportunities to utilize resources distributed across the Internet and solves many issues of interoperability. As a result, enabling applications as Web services are required intensively. Hence, a framework for "gridifying" and running applications on service-oriented grids (GRASG) was built to offer developers a flexible and effective tool for "gridifying" applications and making use of distributed resources on grid environment without much effort from the developers. It allows users to quickly enable an application as a Web service and access this service in a simple fashion. Further, in order to make use of distributed resources, GRASG provides a metascheduling mechanism that is able to schedule jobs to grid resources using Web services protocol. These features reduce the time taken for application development and execution.
