The development of massively distributed applications with enormous demands for computing power, memory, storage and bandwidth is now possible with the Grid. Despite these advances, building Grid applications is still very difficult. We present JGRIM, an approach to easily gridify Java applications by separating functional and Grid concerns in the application code, and report evaluations of its benefits with respect to related approaches. The results indicate that JGRIM simplifies the process of porting applications to the Grid, and the Grid code obtained from this process performs in a very competitive way compared to the code resulting from using similar tools.
