Java-based User Interfaces for CERN's Engineering Data Management System.

Bertrand Rousseau, Christian Luong, Bruno Faugeras, Christophe Delamare, Thomas Pettersson

Speaker: Bertrand Rousseau

  In the framework of the CEDAR project, CERN is implementing a commercial Engineering Data Management System (EDMS): CADIM from Eigner & Partner. CERN's EDMS will be used to store, organise and control all engineering data for the LHC and its experiments : drawings, text, etc., throughout the design, construction and exploitation of the LHC; more than 20 years.
  More information on CEDAR and EDMS can be found at: http://www.cern.ch/CEDAR/
  Customisation of an EDMS is a long and heavy process, that covers requirements analysis, data modeling, scripts writing, integration with external software, etc. The Toucan project takes part in this customisation effort by developing user interfaces for the EDMS, in close collaboration with the EDMS vendor. These interfaces include:
  * A high level Java Application Programming Interface based on an Entity-Relationship Model. This interface is EDMS independent and allows not only to communicate with CADIM, but also with other CERN databases.
  * A Toolbox of Java/Swing graphical components, built on top of the Entity-Relationship API. These components can be configured and assembled to build graphical EDMS clients tailored to certain kinds of tasks and users.
  * An Import/Export format based on XML that allows massive batch exchange of data and metadata between the EDMS and external software.
  After a brief presentation of the CEDAR project, we will focus on the requirements, design and implementation of the Toucan user interfaces.
