Grids allow users to build applications with enormous demands for computational resources. Intuitively, this involves more development effort and expertise on Grid programming. The so-called gridification tools address these problems by deriving the Grid-enabled version of an application from its binary code. Unfortunately, most of such tools produce coarse-grained Grid applications that prevent developers from employing common tuning mechanisms such as parallelism and distribution, and are inflexible, since they were not thought to reuse existing Grid middleware services. We propose a new gridification tool for binary Java applications that solves these issues called BYG (BYtecode Gridifier). Results suggest that BYG can be employed to easily gridify and efficiently execute a broad range of computing intensive applications.
