Efficient utilization of resources is the key factor for any environment. The grid environment is also more dynamic, it facilitates the movement of resources in and out of the environment flexibly. Hence maintenance of centralized registries is not sufficient for this demanding environment. Here, we propose a new approach for resource discovery which employs the Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) technique for resource discovery it also includes the routing information and enhances the resource discovery process.
