This paper gives a description of building a Grid portal infrastructure in CCLRC to allow computational scientists, researchers and application users' access to resources via an easy to use web based portal interfaces. The goal is to develop common grid application components that can be used by portal developers and administrators to build and deploy on portal frameworks. This will allow users to authenticate securely to remote resources and provide transparent access to Grid related tools to manage their task efficiently. The current portal technology, JSR 168, will be described and the development of Java based Grid applications. The work will be substantiated by giving an example of building the UK e-Science National Grid Service (NGS) portal.
