Projects / DataFinder


The DataFinder is a lightweight application software for managing technical and scientific data. It was developed to manage large amounts of data, and allows data to be stored using a number of different storage interfaces (e.g. WebDAV, FTP, GridFTP, SRB, OpenAFS, or TSM). The structure of the data and descriptive metadata are stored in XML format on the central server and can be edited using the standardized WebDAV protocol.

    Release Notes: History of the user client allows direct navigation to a specific path. Keyword search was deactivated as the resulting search queries may block the Catacomb WebDAV server. Support for digest authentication with WebDAV servers was added along with basic support for the Limestone WebDAV server. Creation of new repository configurations using the administration client was simplified. The provided distributions were enhanced with a stand-alone script API distribution, additional documentation, and script examples. Improvements were made to the script API functions and the script extension user client integration.
