deegree3 developer team meeting 2009-07-14
Protocol by: AndreiIonita
1. deegree community
To keep all the deegree developers up-to-date with what is going on, a (weekly) feed with the developer meeting wiki page will be created. All achieved milestones will be communicated to the mailing list.
2. Geometry collaboration
Last week the the first meeting for the geometry collaboration took place (via IRC). Agreement was reached on technologies to be used (Java5, svn, Maven). Hosting will be decided in the next few days.
Pertaining to the geometry packages, MarkusSchneider has created a Points type that improves the performance of the Geometry objects.
3. Web Map Service
AndreasSchmitz tested the new WMS and the results are about 10 times faster. Testing was done with OpenLayers with various SHP files. With the open screen mode enabled, the client reacted significantly faster.
4. New clients
The WPVS client was added to the client svn module. It currently uses the Stadt Bonn data.
AndreiIonita integrated a OGC stress-test GUI client in the test module . Currently only WPVS is supported. Random test are generated with the user having the possibility to set some of the parameters.
Any comments and suggestions for these clients is welcome, as your use-cases are the ones that drive the interfaces.
Meanwhile, work on another deegree3 client has been started: Ariane Wietschke is setting up an SOS interface.
A Hudson built system has been set up.
RutgerBezema is taking over the implementation of the Web Coverage Service.
- The work on a WPVS demo release is starting.
- A few minor bugs were fixed in the WPVS.
AndreasSchmitz is currently evaluating the certification of deegree3 SOS
