During a GLUE conference call in March we concluded that the GLUE domains architecture and the GLUE schema for network characteristics observations were mature, and the merge of the two was appropriate.
In order to perform this step, we designed an interface between the two parts: Paul Mealor implemented the API needed to access the R-GMA archive using the addressing implemented by the GlueDomains database, for which I implemented the API and the database structure.
The target language was Perl, using its object oriented features
to obtain a clean program structure. GlueDomains is based on MySQL, as
well as R-GMA.
