AbstractThe combination of Web Services and grid-computing technologies is currently of a major scientific revolution. It combines the middleware solution from Web Services and resource-sharing solutions of grid computing. We present a general framework based on Web Services and grid-based technologies for online laboratories. It is a distributed system model where computational resources and experimental devices throughout the networks are organized into federations. The benefits of this model are information processing capacity increase and resource sharing. We discuss a number of technical considerations using this framework. These include: the descriptions of tele-experimentation resources; the wrapping of instruments into a web service; the composition of Web Services, which is modeled as a planning problem, and; the design of an online laboratory brokerage system, which we dealt with in a former article. We also discuss some issues related to business logic and policy in a particular sector, such as tele-learning and network-supported research via information technologies.
