Modern grid and Web technologies provide straightforward access to applications and services running on remote resources. The user (which may be a software developer or even an application) should be able to discover such a service and dynamically load an interface to interact with it. While some software systems support either fully or partially automatic creation of client software to access Web services, fewer support grid services in the same way. This paper introduces a new system that automatically generates client software to allow access to both grid and Web services. Although designed as a stand-alone tool for accessing any Web or grid service, we demonstrate its usefulness in the context of the SymGrid framework for grid-based symbolic computations.
