Welcome to the ZOO Project

ZOO is a WPS (Web Processing Service) open source project released under a  MIT/X-11 style license . It provides an OGC WPS compliant developer-friendly framework to create and chain WPS Web services. ZOO is made of three parts:

  •  ZOO Kernel : A powerful server-side C Kernel which makes it possible to manage and chain Web services coded in different programming languages.
  •  ZOO Services : A growing suite of example Web services based on various Open Source libraries. (get inspired !)
  •  ZOO API : A server-side JavaScript API able to call and chain the ZOO Services, which makes the development and chaining processes easier.

Powerful ZOO Kernel, that makes coffee

ZOO is based on a 'WPS Service Kernel' which constitutes the ZOO's core system (aka ZOO Kernel). The latter is able to load dynamic libraries and to handle them as on-demand Web services. The  ZOO Kernel is written in C language, but supports several common programming languages in order to connect to numerous libraries and above all to simplify the Web service end-developer's job.

Use the ZOO Services and make your own

A  ZOO service is a link composed of a metadata file (.zcfg) and the code for the corresponding implementation. The metadata file describes all the available functions which can be called using a WPS Exec Request, as well as the desired input/output. Services contain the algorithms and functions, and can now be implemented in C/C++, Fortran, Java, Python, PHP, Perl and JavaScript.

Easy implementation with the ZOO API

The  ZOO API is a simple and concise JavaScript library designed to call and chain the ZOO Services easily, and adds the capability to define logic in the chaining of your ZOO Services.
