Abstract: Web Services are gaining great popularity in the Grid community, and with good reason. The Starlink project is adopting Web Services as the method of interapplication communication. This is being done natively in new Java-based applications while older applications are being wrapped to provide Web Service interfaces. We are in this way providing interoperability between the generations of software in a heterogeneous, distributed manner and allowing the software to be usable in a distributed environment such as the GRID.
