Grid computing and pervasive computing have rapidly emerged and affirmed respectively as the paradigm for high performance computing and the paradigm for user-friendly computing. The conjunction of such paradigms are now generating a new one, the Pervasive Grid Computing, which aims at extending classic grids with characteristics of pervasive computing like spontaneous and transparent integration of mobile devices, context-awareness, pro-activity, and so on. In this paper, we present mechanisms and a software infrastructure for executing tasks in a pervasive grid. In particular, the proposed solution, which provides an implementation of the Utility Computing model, enables users to submit tasks and to pick up results without concerning on requiring and handling hardware resources.
