Abstract

Locating suitable resources within a Grid is a computationally intensive process, with no guarantee of quality and suitability of the discovered resources. An alternative approach is to categorize resources based on the services they provide – leading to the interaction of peers with common goals to form societies/communities. The communities can be adaptive in nature and evolve based on changes in their operating environment -- such as changes in neighboring communities and user requirements. We have implemented JXTA prototype to illustrate the concepts of community formation in which Peers offering different services can be grouped together based on different criteria.
