Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "OODTProposal" by chrismattmann
Date Thu, 31 Dec 2009 22:27:59 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "OODTProposal" page has been changed by chrismattmann.

  We will also contact other related efforts for possible cooperation and contributions.
  
  == External Dependencies ==
- OODT depends on will depend on a number of external connector libraries with various licensing
conditions. An initial list of such dependencies (taken from one of the OODT sub-components,
the CAS file manager) is shown below.

- There are also some LGPL parser libraries that would be useful. Whether and how such dependencies
could be handled will be discussed during incubation. No such dependencies will be added to
the project before the legal implications have been cleared.Existing LGPL dependencies, such
as hsqldb above for the CAS file manager, will be removed and a suitable ASL friendly alternative
will be investigated and used to replace the LGPL dependencies.

  == Cryptography ==
  OODT itself will not use cryptography, but it is possible that some of the external product
or profile server or CAS libraries will include cryptographic code to handle features present
in various science data formats. The current OODT code base relies on [[http://lucene.apache.org/tika/|Apache
Tika]] which contains an export control statement regarding cryptographic code per Apache
policy. We will follow a similar approach with OODT. Mattmann led this effort in [[http://lucene.apache.org/nutch/|Apache
Nutch]] and saw Jukka Zitting lead this effort in Apache Tika, so he is familiar with this
process.
