Existing parallel mesh generation codes based on the parallelization of past sequential mesh generation technology. Given that it takes about ten years to develop the software infrastructure for sequential industrial strength mesh generation libraries, it is clear that traditional parallelization approaches deliver technology that is outdated. This problem becomes more serious if one considers that the improvements of sequential codes in terms of quality, speed, and functionality are open ended. In this paper we present a new approach to parallel mesh generation for addressing this serious problem. Our approach is based on of-the-shelf sequential mesh generation software for delivering industrial strength parallel mesh generation (web-)services over the Grid.
