We present a detailed description of the implementation of a library of Grid tag libraries and Grid beans for Grid Web portal development. Grid tags provide Java Server Faces (JSF) custom components for Grid services. They enable the definition of attributes to the Grid service parameters in a dynamic way embedded into JSF view pages. In addition, Grid beans provide client proxies to the Grid services. Grid tags and beans together provide a platform to develop Grid portlets easily. In addition to standard Grid job submission and remote file operation tags, we also provide management and monitoring capabilities for Grid tasks. This system can persistently store bean features and job parameters, which results in a permanent storage for archiving and reference.
