Work Package 4 (Rwp04): Registry Replication & Interfaces



The remit of Work Package 4 is to design a mechanism whereby registry information may be managed and distributed in a robust, scalable fashion and provide a query schema used to interrogate the registry.


The members of the team are:
Andre Schaaff
Gretchen Greene
Keith Noddle (WP lead)
Marco Leoni
Ray Plante
William O'Mullane


Rwp04 has 4 main goals:

  1. Design the distribution mechanism
  2. Design a Query Schema for interrogating the registry
  3. Define the interfaces whereby the above 2 will be achieved
  4. Define the interfaces whereby registry contents may be managed

Note "Distributed" in the sense used above can mean many things from referenced (pointers to data) through to replicated (copies of data). At the conclusion of Rwp04 a definition will have been finalised!


Date Deliverable
