    abstract = {We proposed to participate in the Austrian Grid Phase 2 within the frame of the activity “Grid Research”. Our goal is to develop a distributed software framework and an API for grid computing which shall empower applications to perform scheduling decisions on their own, utilizing the information about the grid environment in order to adapt the algorithmic structure to the particular situation. The planned solution will be able to eliminate some algorithmic challenges of nowadays grid programming. Since the last report we implemented a prototype version of the proposed API and successfully tested on some resources of the Austrian Grid. In this paper, we present the current state of the implementation and envisage the next development steps.},
