Grid computing has enabled pooling a very large number of heterogeneous resource administered by different secu rity domains. Applications are dynamically deployed on the resources available at the time. Dynamic nature of the resources and applications requirements makes needs the grid middleware to support the ability of migrating a run ning application to a different resource. Especially, Grid applications are typically long running and thus stoping them and starting them from scratch isn’t a feasible op tion. This paper presents an overview of migration support in a java based grid middleware called DGET. Migration support in DGET includes multi-threaded migration and asynchronous migration as well.
