Hi there,

I'm desperately looking for information on GLite's Architecture!

I'm also interested in to what extent it differentiates from RPC and ORB Middlewares.

Thank you!

The starting point for GLite appears to be this documentation page.

GLite is a "Grid" framework, RPC and ORB are not inherently Grid capable.

Here is my summary article on Grid computing. It attempts to orient newcomers to the variety of technologies that get grouped in "Grid" computing.

Is it correct to conclude that PRC and ORB are middleware technologies solely used in Web Services, whereas GLite is designed with the Grid paradigm in mind?

The RPC and ORB concepts were in use in distributed computing LONG LONG before anybody started bandying the words "web services" about so that statement as it stands is incorrect.

You are going to have to do a lot of reading to get the full picture of distributed computing and the various technologies employed.
