The WPS-Client API is nearly finished. It will allow easy interaction with any WebProcessingService through java command-line.
The WPS (Server) API will be enhanced with a Service Provider Interface to allow pluggable process repositories.
The class StreamBufferStore has been provided as an utility class (e.g. to be used by the WPS-Client. StreamBufferStore allows to persist a potentially large data stream on the local hard disc. This is essential when working with large streaming date and has significant benefits (e.g. scalability) over using a Byte-array based output stream.
2. PostGIS Feature Store
Recent developments on the PostGIS Feature Store allow to fully read the philosopher example from deegree2.
A secure proxy has been added to support pluggable authentication authorities.
4. Coordinate Reference System
A concept has been initialized to support different Coordinate Reference System names. More importantly, the axis-order-concept has been redesigned: as default behaviour, the axis-order is handled as defined in specifications (e.g. WFS, WMS, etc.). To support even clients that do not care about the specified behaviour, the axis-order will be configurable based on the requesting client.
The deegree toolbox has been enhanced to support georeferencing (for 3D objects). This component has been enhanced to support Helmert-Transformation and provides an on/off switch for the snapping mechanism, now.
