This is already how it works. Quick search is configured in a text
config file to set the fields that are searched from multiple metadata
standards. I'm simply asking Jing to add to this default set of fields
one that I think would be useful i the default search -- taxonomy.
Personally, I think the EcoGrid API (I am going to ask that we rename
this soon) is pretty lightweight itself -- its the GT implementation
that is a bit heavier. Perosnally I don't think EcoGrid is big and
bulky at all -- in fact, it a super simple API with only a handful of
methods. Which makes implementation on new data systems relatively
easy. Earlier suggested approaches (like support for XQuery that we
rejected) would have been much bigger and bulkier, and far harder to tie
into existing data systems in use around the country.
Could you calrify what you think is bulky? get()? query()? login()?
logout()? put()? something else? or are you referring to the use of
globus mainly? Thanks for the clarification.
GAMA is also pretty straightforward. Given we want access to resources
that use a variety of authentication and authorizaiton schemes, it seems
like a great approach to me. Do you know of a better API that we should
consider that support, e.g., LDAP and MyProxy?
