Apache to steward NASA-built middleware

Joab Jackson | Jan. 6, 2011
The Apache Software Foundation is extending its breadth of open-source software projects to include a package of data-management middleware developed by NASA.

Having completed the first Apache release, the development team will focus its efforts on improving OODT on a number of fronts: developing better tools for metadata extraction, improving the GUIs and better organizing the OODT package as a whole, Mattmann said.

A not-for-profit corporation, the Apache Software Foundation offers organizational and financial support for nearly 100 open-source programs, including the Apache Web server, the Hadoop distributed computing framework, the Subversion revision control system and the Tomcat application server.
