Subject [Incubator Wiki] Trivial Update of "CaitrinProposal" by acymbalak
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2008 17:58:28 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by acymbalak:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/CaitrinProposal

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  There are still many questions that need to be answered regarding this application.  They
are all asked with their appropriate topic but summarized here:
  
  Should the user management default be Apache Directory or a simple database?
+ Will the Web service just provide data for machine to machine exchanges or will it default
to human readable?
  
  This project will have both the back end and the front end needed for a complete gallery.
 The proposal is to have a rigid design for the content with a very flexible display piece.
  
- The photos and meta data will be exposed via a Web service.  During discussions on the lists
regarding how the code should be written, the one thing that no one seemed to be able to agree
on was how the photos should be displayed.  Some would like to see them in Flash, others AJAX,
still others as a JSP library.  Exposing the information as a Web service allows for each
of these display formats to be utilized.

for machine to machine exchanges or will it default to being human readable?  If it only provides
for machine to machine exchanges then a default option for display will need to be provided.
  
  The user management system will be based on JAAS.  It should be implemented in such a way
that it can also be flexible.  An end user should be able to integrate any existing user authentication
tool against it.  Question: should the default be Apache Directory or a simple database? 
User authorization will facilitate photos being marked as public (anyone), protected (invite
only), or private (just the owner).
