Migrating BDIFS from a Peer-to-Peer Design to a Grid Service Architecture

Tom Kirkham, Thomas Varsamidis

Abstract

This paper documents the transition of a distributed Peer-to-Peer based business to business enterprise application integration framework, to one using Grid Services. In the context of an E-Business environment we examine the practical strengths of Grid Service development and implementation as opposed to Peer-to-Peer implementation. By exploring the weakness in the BDIFS Peer-to-Peer architecture and workflow we illustrate how we have improved the system using Grid Services. The final part of the paper documents the new Grid Service design and workflow; in particular the creation of the new automated trading mechanism within BDIFS.
