Web service architectures have gained popularity in recent years within the scientific grid research community. One reason for this is that web services allow software and services from various organizations to be combined easily to provide integrated and distributed applications. However, most applications developed and used by scientific communities are not web-service-oriented, and there is a growing need to integrate them into grid applications based on service-oriented architectures. In this paper, we describe a framework that allows scientists to provide a web service interface to their existing applications as web services without having to write extra code or modify their applications in any way. In addition, application providers do not need to be experts in web services standards, such as Web Services Description Language, Web Services Addressing, Web Services Security, or secure authorization, because the framework automatically generates these details. The framework also enables users to discover these application services, interact with them, and compose scientific workflows from the convenience of a grid portal.
