In some workflows, e.g. GARP, it needs to upload generated data into
EcoGrid service. So we need an actor which can write data back to
EcoGrid. This actor not only function as uploading data to ecogrid, but
also as a GUI for user to annotate metadata for data.
Here is some though about this actor:
1) Which metadata language we should choose? My thought is use EML as
statndard metadata language. If user want to another one, an xslt file
will transfer EML to it.
2)If we want to use EML as standard metadata language, we can borrow
some code(e.g. datapackage wizard) from Morpho. Howerver, the code need
some modification for kepler. There are two possible approach for this
modification. First to copy some morpho source code to kepler source
tree and modify in there. Second to modify code in morpho source three
and put morpho jar file into kepler lib. The first approache somehow
duplicate code but devopler can concerntrate in keper(don't worry about
morpho). I personally like the second approach because it would not
Any comment and suggestion will be appreciated.
