Grid technologies have had a major impact on the scientific research recently, creating great opportunities for utilization of powerful computing resources. Researchers all around the world have started to use the grid to solve important scientific problems in relatively short periods of time. Many scientific applications have already been enabled on the grid and many of them are waiting to become grid-aware. It is important to make this process of enabling applications on the grid easy. The tools used to create grid portals and grid access environments can help to achieve this task and facilitate the process of enabling applications on the grid and within grid portals. Many outstanding works have been conducted in that field. In this paper we present our contribution to these works that we believe can help to create an environment in which enabling applications within a grid portal is easy and requires little effort.
