Dave and Yang are considering moving their existing web apps developed in
Perl to OGSA services.
As to my knowledge, OGSA provide tools to build OGSA services in Java, C,
etc. But I am not sure
if it is possible currently to build OGSA services in Perl.

Matt's message reminded me that your team had  been using Perl to develop
GridPort software. If your team has adopted or are working on OGSA
this will be a good news for Dave and Yang.

Hi Bing,

The perl Cog was written to interact with older implementations of
Globus (versions 2.x). We looked into writing modules to interact
with GT3, but found some limitations to perl that would not allow
this easily. However, Perl can interact with some of the web services
that OGSA produces, as long as you stay away from GSI authentication
and some of the other higher-level features.
