The NASA-led Object Oriented Data Technology project has won the full support of the Apache Software Foundation.

“Apache has deemed the Object Oriented Data Technology (OODT) architecture, originally developed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a Top Level Project, according to the space agency. This means it is one of a handful of the foundation’s open source projects to receive project management and resource support,” InformationWeek’s Elizabeth Montalbano reported.

It was first developed in 1998 as a way to build a national framework for data sharing, but Montalbano said OODT has evolved beyond that for “applications in physical science, medical research, and ground data systems.”

“OODT is Java-based middleware that uses metadata to allow end users to simultaneously leverage disparate and geographically dispersed computing and data resources,” Montalbano said.
