Many existing Grid technologies and resource management systems lack a standardized job submission interface in Grid environments or e-Infrastructures. Even if the same language for job description is used, often the interface for job submission is also different in each of these technologies. The evolvement of the standardized Job Submission and Description Language (JSDL) as well as the OGSA - Basic Execution Services (OGSA-BES) pave the way to improve the interoperability of all these technologies enabling cross-Grid job submission and better resource management capabilities. In addition, the BytelO standards provide useful mechanisms for data access that can be used in conjunction with these improved resource management capabilities. This paper describes the integration of these standards into the recently released UNICORE 6 Grid middleware that is based on open standards such as the Web Services Resource Framework (WS-RF) and WS-Addressing (WS-A).
