ChinaGrid aims at building a public service system for Chinese education and research. ChinaGrid Support Platform (CGSP) is a grid middleware developed for the construction of the ChinaGrid. Function modules of CGSP for system running are Domain Manager, Information Center, Job Manager, Data Manager, Service Container and Security Manager. Developing tools for gird constructor and application developers consist of Service Packaging Tool, Job Defining Tool, Portal Constructor and Programming API. CGSP architecture is introduced first. Then, CGSP function modules and developing tools are described. At last, job executing flow in CGSP is also put forward in the paper.
