Abstract

This document is the final report of the JRC-con terra GmbH study “Software for distributed Metadata Catalogue services to support the EU Portal". It describes the underlying system architecture and the relationship of the deployed components. The main focus of this document is on the development of a catalogue service broker to enable a distributed search against various catalogues available in Europe. The catalogues being considered for distributed search were evaluated and tested. The results of these tests, the resulting shortcomings of the underlying specifications and the workarounds to integrate these catalogues in the system are described in detail.
