Over the lifetime of the ADA:WG, the Array Database Assessment report has been compiled; currently, it is being reviewed for adoption as RDA Recommendation, see the ADA:WG report recommendation info page.
To ensure openness, transparency, and collaborative editing, all information has been collected in the wiki pages below. FInally, the wiki pages have been copied into an MS-Word document to produce the final PDF formatted result, and the wiki pages below are obsoleted.
The stated goal of the WG has been achieved by publishing its report. However, given the topicality the WG may opt for continuing its work, given there are several potential work items spotted:
- extend the benchmark comparison to further systems not yet tested
- extend the benchmark to capture more details
- consider further emerging tools
- collect and organize Use Cases via http://patterns.promsns.org/
