Abstract
e-Science has much to benefit from the emerging field
of grid computing. However, construction of e-Science
grids is a complex and inefficient undertaking. In particu-
lar, deployment of user applications can present a major
challenge due to the scale and heterogeneity of the grid.
In spite of this, deployment is not supported by current
grid computing middleware or configuration management
systems, which focus on a super-user approach to
application management. Hence, individual users with
limited resource control deploy applications manually
which is not a grid scalable solution. This paper presents
our motivation, design and implementation of a grid
scalable, user-oriented, secure application deployment
system, Distributed Ant (DistAnt). DistAnt extends the Ant
build file environment to provide a flexible procedural
