European Java/CORBA initiative
Object Oriented (OO) programming for practical seismological tools benefits from a
co-ordinated approach. IRIS
Data Management Center (DMC) and
University of South Carolina
USC have developed a number of relevant Java classes and CORBA interfaces for
seismological applications within the
Recently, May 2-4, 2000 ORFEUS organised a workshop
"The use of Java in seismological applications". A better title
would have been, according to one of the main organisers,
"Distributed computing in earthquake seismology".
The intention of this workshop was to review the state-of-the-art with regard to
OO programming in earthquake seismology and to investigate the possibilities for
co-ordination of the efforts presently under way.
An overview over all Java/CORBA related (European) initiatives is maintained by the
ORFEUS software working group.
A number of initiatives have been started:
Some other projects are pending on the MEREDIAN contract signing
