This paper studies the resource discovery problem in a grid system based on matchmaking-routers. The proposed framework suggests that a grid can be seen as an environment comprised by matchmaking-routers and resources. Each matchmaking-router is in charge of its local resources. The goal is to discover the appropriate resource for a specific request and then effectively direct the request to the resource within that environment. Matchmaking-routers are responsible of providing the set of resources that can satisfy a specific request and then directing the request to the resource that is capable of satisfying it.
