This WP11 Activity Report described the activities performed in January 2012 by Beneficiary and Task. It is part of January 2012 Activity Report.

T11.1 Application Programming Interfaces Framework Definition

NKUA Activities

During the third period, the task completed the definition, evaluation and fine-tuning of the methodology that will lead the process of development in all the work package tasks.

A concrete plan for the production of the D11.1 has been presented and evaluated by all partners. The process of development has been recorded and established in wiki pages through which a clear path of the WP steps is designated. Two approaches determine the upcoming tasks and are launched in parallel. In the context of this methodology, distinct framework layers and functional areas have been identified and working groups in charge for each subdivision of the work space have been defined.

The work done on the definition of the architecture of Integration and Interoperability Layer, has imposed the need for the evolution not only of the current Application Service Layer but for the client libraries of the system also. To this end, a working group has been established to lead the definition of the domains and their directions towards the creation of interoperable interfaces targeted by the WP.

Finally, there has been progress on the investigation of the evolution of the HTTP interface for searching, to allow the provision of advanced data discovery facilities in gCube. The needs for the extensions identified are further analysed as part of the T11.3.


The beneficiary should report here major issues faced in the reporting period and the identified corrective actions, if any.


  • Establishment of wiki pages that will constitute the skeleton of the D11.1.

FAO Activities

FAO continues to prototype client-side solutions to support the framework for local Java APIs, in agreement with WP roadmap. Two new solutions have been developed and are already under source revision. The first, common-scope, deals with transparent scope propagation within JVM (based on inheritable thread locals) and flexible scope map configuration (based on classpath scanning). The second, common-ghn-client, addresses issues of transparent interception of client calls over HTTP, particularly with regard to scope injection. The work is framed by a more general notion of client-container and mechanisms to bootstrap it without requiring explicit dependencies. Call interception relies on an embedded HTPP proxy and transparent proxying of clients sockets, with fallback strategies based on uri re-writing and system properties. In barebone JVMs, i.e. for pure clients, the client container is bootstrapped by Java instrumentation agents, at JVM startup. In servlet container, i.e. for services that acts as clients of services further downstream, the client container is bootstrapped by service listeners.

FAO has measured these mechanisms against a range of common HTTP APIs, from java.net URLConnections and Apache's HTTPClient (low-level), to Restlet, Jersey, and RestEasy. In some cases (java.net, Jersey over anything, Restlet over anything, and RestEasy over java.net), the goals are reached at 0 dependencies (full transparency). In others, HTTPClient and ReastEasy over HTTPClient, minimal dependencies are required (calls for uri rewriting).

FORTH Activities

We had a (WP) teleconference organized by WP11 leader where we discussed about the possible methodology for the work in the work package.
What concerns the new functionalities in the infrastructure that will be provided by FORTH it is generally agreed to follow the main principles (those driven from D4S, D4S II) and the proposed methodology for producing the APIs.
