Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3132)


The application of the novel PPDL (Policy Description Language with Preferences) specification language to Grid-Service Selection is presented. We describe an architecture based on interposing the policy enforcement engine between the calling application and the client stubs. This way, our solution is fully declararive and remains transparent to the client application.
