Apache OODT – Top Level Project

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Apache OODT is the first ASF Top Level Project status for NASA developed software.

From the website:

Just what is Apache™ OODT?

It’s metadata for middleware (and vice versa):

  • Transparent access to distributed resources
  • Data discovery and query optimization
  • Distributed processing and virtual archives

But it’s not just for science! It’s also a software architecture:

  • Models for information representation
  • Solutions to knowledge capture problems
  • Unification of technology, data, and metadata

Looks like a project that could benefit from having topic maps as part of its tool kit.

Check out the 0.1 OODT release and see what you think.
