Abstract

This paper describes the current status of the CrossGrid Project architecture. The architecture is divided into six layers. The relations between main components are presented in UML notation. A flexible concept of plugins that enable creation of uniform user-friendly interface is shown. A brief discussion of OGSA technology and its possible application to CrossGrid services is given as an interesting area of future work.
