We investigate best practices for Grid software design and development, and propose a composable, loosely coupled Service-Oriented Architecture for Grid job management. The architecture focuses on providing a transparent Grid access model for concurrent use of multiple Grid middlewares and aims to decouple Grid applications from Grid middlewares and infrastructure. The notion of an ecosystem of Grid infrastructure components is extended, and Grid job management software design is discussed in this context. Non- intrusive integration models and abstraction of Grid middleware function- ality through hierarchical aggregation of autonomous Grid job management services are emphasized, and service composition techniques facilitating this process are explored. A proof-of-concept implementation of the architecture is presented along with a discussion of architecture implementation details and trade-offs introduced by the service composition techniques used.
