In 2005, Jiageng Li and David Cords put forward a method of extending globus's Metacomputing Directory Service (MDS) [7] to solve the problem of scalable authorization in grid dynamic environment.
They propose state-of-the-art algorithms that are designed to be used in a variety of applications and libraries, covering parallel and distributed Java for heterogeneous systems, the optimization of dense linear algebra algorithms on heterogeneous machines, distributed process networks with COBRA, parallel adaptive mesh refinement with load balancing in a heterogeneous cluster, evaluation of DIET hierarchical metacomputing architecture, and utilization-based techniques for strategically mapping heterogeneous applications into the HiPer-D heterogeneous computing system.

The task of providing a standard querying mechanism for Computational GRID Environments (CGE) has already witnessed considerable work from groups such as the Globus project who have delivered the Metacomputing Directory Service (MDS) which provides a means to query devices attached to the GRID.
The WebSphere based portal uses the Glebus Java CoG Kit to pre-select candidate queues for submitting each simulation, using Globus Metacomputing Directory Service.

This methodology is a natural component of metacomputing, see [8] and related articles in the November 1998 issue of Communications.
This scenario - called metacomputing - could become a reality in the very near future, suggests Baruch Awerbuch, professor of computer science, Johns Hopkins University.
