Preview of irongui - A Graphical User Interface for IF-MAP 2.0 Servers
We would like to give a preview on one of our current tasks that we are working on: irongui. It is a Graphical User Interface for IF-MAP 2.0 servers. It is intended to provide a debug view on the current metadata hold by a MAP server.
One nice aspect of irongui is that it can act as an ordinary MAP client. In the release version, the user can provide the root node of the graph that shall be displayed. Afterwards, the communication between irongui and the MAP server is based upon standard IF-MAP subscription and poll operations. Thus, irongui should be able to visualize any MAP 2.0 server. If irongui is used with our own irond MAP server, it is also possible to use an irond-specific operation in order to bootstrap the visualisation process.
The first version of irongui will be released in November 2010.25 Oct 2010
