deegree3 developer team meeting 2010-05-25
Protocol by: AndreasSchmitz
The CSW is being moved to using the new WhereBuilder class, which fixes some incorrect SQL generation bugs.
2. Georeferencing tool
The 3D geo referencing tool is now using the (updated) raster API.
3. Oracle feature store
The Oracle feature store is well in progress, and supports all operations except Update now. The predicates/filters are mapped to SQL using the new WhereBuilder.
4. New WhereBuilder
The WhereBuilder has been enhanced to generate more generic where clauses (which can also be used for Oracle). It also includes a proper type inference mechanism to be able to set operands of the proper type.
5. Tool support for generating data sources?
It was discovered that it can be tedious work to generate the data sources by hand if you have a lot of them, and it was concluded that appropriate tool support would be nice.
6. Shape feature store and nio
The shape feature store was moved to using nio, which lead to drastic performance enhancements and better thread safety.
7. Coverage API
The coverage API has been moved to provide an all new Coverage interface, through which one can access simple rasters as well as multiresolution ones. The Coverage class can be used to obtain AbstractRaster instances which give access to the actual data.
The WPVS transition/cleanup regarding the new data sources is now complete.
