deegree 3 developer meeting (2008/11/11)
Protocol by: MarkusSchneider
1. WPVS implementation
RutgerBezema will lead the development of a deegree3 based implementation of the WPVS standard. Timeframe is early spring 2009.
2. Providing datastore layer functionality
Native data and geometry access in deegree3 is still a bit off. However, many of the subsystems and services in development depend on the Persistence/datastore layer, such as the WMS, CSW and WPVS. Therefore, the following basic roadmap has been agreed upon to provide the necessary functionality as soon as possible:
- mid-december 08: Have a working datastore layer that allows the retrieval (no transactions) of features based on filter expressions. Technically, this will be just an early draft of the deegree3 datastore API that sends requests to deegree 2 WFS instances and transforms the responses into deegree3 features.
- mid-january 09: First native access of PostGIS databases. From this point, developing of datastore dependent modules should be possible without any external services.
