Open-Source ARROW modules

  • Condition of the DEST funding for ARROW that any commissioned software would need to be made available as open source
  • ARROW has partnered with VTLS to commission them to write a series of ARROW-funded modules
  • These ARROW-commissioned modules will call Fedora using the existing APIs and will also expose themselves as a series of Web-Services
  • VTLS will be able to build products on top of these new ARROW-commissioned modules if they wish and future releases of the VITAL product will   use these modules
  • First of these web services to be made available will be services to support SRU/SRW searching of ARROW repositories
  • What are some other open-source possibilities?
