Java libraries for bare-bone HTTP communication, including support for NIO.
HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP transport components that can be used to build custom client and server side HTTP services with a minimal footprint. HttpCore supports two I/O models: blocking I/O model based on the classic Java I/O and non-blocking, event driven I/O model based on Java NIO. The blocking I/O model may be more appropriate for data intensive, low latency scenarios, whereas the non-blocking model may be more appropriate for high latency scenarios where raw data throughput is less important than the ability to handle thousands of simultaneous HTTP connections in a resource efficient manner....
A REST API Gateway for Hadoop Services
The Apache Knox Gateway is a REST API Gateway for interacting with Hadoop clusters. The Knox Gateway provides a single access point for all REST interactions with Hadoop clusters. In this capacity, the Knox Gateway is able to provide valuable functionality to aid in the control, integration, monitoring and automation of critical administrative and analytical needs of the enterprise. Authentication (LDAP and Active Directory Authentication Provider) Federation/SSO (HTTP Header Based Identity Federation) Authorization (Service Level Authorization) Auditing While there are a number of benefits for unsecured Hadoop clusters, the Knox Gateway also complements the kerberos secured cluster quite nicely. Coupled...
The Apache Open Climate Workbench(OCW) is a comprehensive suite of algorithms, libraries, and interfaces designed to standardize and streamline the process of interacting with large quantities of observational data (such as is provided by the RCMED) and conducting regional climate model evaluations.
Apache Open Climate Workbench is an effort to develop software that performs climate model evaluation using model outputs from a variety of different sources (the Earth System Grid Federation, the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment, the U.S. National Climate Assessment and the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program) and temporal/spatial scales with remote sensing data from NASA, NOAA and other agencies. The toolkit includes capabilities for rebinning, metrics computation and visualization.
