In this paper we present the design, implementation and evaluation of the Grid-enabled Discover middleware substrate. The middleware substrate enables Grid infrastructure services provided by the Globus Toolkit (security, information, resource management, storage) to interoperate with collaboratory services provided by Discover (collaborative application access, monitoring, and steering). Furthermore, it enables users to seamlessly access and integrate local and remote services to synthesize customized middleware configurations on demand.
