The main purpose of this work is to explain the management and distribution of tasks in a grid middleware. The aim is to propose an environment that enables designing the batch jobs that use the standard software and system resources for communication and data exchange. The article explains JSDL specification for defining and management of one batch jobs. The motivation is to design a tool for an easy job definition. The result is a tool that does not require special programming objects for solving a specific task. This work deals with the mechanisms for monitoring and gathering information about the result of each processing task. The JSDL definitions provide the mechanism for the solution of these problems. Grid Scheduler more easily recognizes the status of a specific task.
