The construction of large scale e-Science grid experi-
ments presents a challenge to e-Scientists because of the
inherent difficulty of deploying applications over large
scale heterogeneous grids. In spite of this, user-oriented
application deployment has remained unsupported in grid
middleware. This lack of support for application deploy-
ment is strongly detrimental to the usability, evolution,
uptake and continual development of the grid. This paper
presents our motivation, design and implementation of the
Distributed Ant user-oriented application deployment sys-
tem, including recent extensions to support application
deployment over heterogeneous grids. We also present a
significant Distributed Ant deployment case study, demon-
