> Implement the Sling support for Apache Airavata, currently Airavata has an API to store/retrieve
data from Jackrabbit, but its not scalable when to handle large amount of data because of
keeping the session in the client side. Sling supports accessing Jackrabbit in REST full way.
So we need to come up with another API which looks like the current API but uses jackrabbit
through Sling Interface. The integration will require testing to ensure Airavata tutorials
will work as is out of the box. The current data structures have limitations, so its strongly
advisable to come up with hierarchical tree structure to store different data categories.
Airavata community is very knowledgable on the requirements and will provide good inputs.

> User community & Impact of the software: Airavata is primarily targeted to build
science gateways using computational resources from various disciplines. The initial targeted
set of gateways include projects supporting research and education in chemistry, life sciences,
biophysics, environmental sciences, geosciences astronomy and nuclear physics. The goal of
airavata is to enhance productivity of these gateways to utilize cyberinfrastructure of resources
(e.g., local lab resources, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE),
the Open Science Grid (OSG), University Clusters, Academic and Commercial Computational Clouds
like FutureGrid & Amazon EC2). By using open community based software components and services
like Airavata, gateways will be able to focus on providing additional scientific capabilities
and to expanding the number of supported users. The capabilities of these gateways will offer
clear benefits to society.
