Speaker: Tony JohnsonFreeHEP is a database containing a collection of software and information about software that is useful in high-energy physics and related fields. FreeHEP was one of the first databases interfaced to the web back in 1992, but unfortunately it has become old and rusty over the years.
In these days of increasing reliance on open source software, and many small projects written for one experiment but useful for many experiments, the need for a database like FreeHEP seems more vital than ever. Hence FreeHEP 2000, an attempt to revive the old FreeHEP with an updated web interface and methodology.
FreeHEP 2000 will have the following features: „h Entries created and maintained by anyone in the HEP community via the web. „h Automatic mail sent to maintainer yearly, with response required to maintain "active" status of the entry. „h Implemented using Java Servlets and updated database organization. „h New database fields to indicate licensing terms, open source, etc. „h Ability to import/export information to/from other databases in XML format
