Distributing an application on several machines is one of the key aspects of Grid-computing. In the last few years several groups have developed solutions for the occurring communication problems. However, users are still left on their own when it comes to the handling of a Grid-computer, as soon as they are facing a mix of several Grid software environments on target machines. This paper presents a tool, which eases the handling of a Grid-computer, by hiding some of the complexity of heterogeneous Grid-environments from the user.
