Abstract-- Core grid technologies are rapidly maturing, but
there remains a shortage of real grid applications. One important
reason is the lack of a simple and high-level application program-
ming toolkit, bridging the gap between existing grid middleware
and application-level needs. The Grid Application Toolkit (GAT),
as currently developed by the EC-funded project GridLab [1],
provides this missing functionality. As seen from the application,
the GAT provides a unified simple programming interface to
the grid infrastructure, tailored to the needs of grid application
programmers and users. A uniform programming interface will
