Hi all,
I'm putting together prototypes and architecture for a platform 
interchanging XML data.
The core software (at least) must be freely distributable, platform / 
database independent.

At the moment I have 4 legacy DB, 1 new DB to be defined, an external DB 
and some other DBs to be plugged into the framework for the future.
All the DB are chemical related: at least for a part of the data in each 
database the core data model can be the same.
All the DBs needs to be inter-communicating, actually on top of the DBs I 
have legacy data flows and new data flows to be handled.

My technology idea is mapping the releational DB into the XML schema 
without usage of any JDO. Extracting metadata definitions from the database 
and validating different XML data documents with respect to different data 
definitions.
Another critical point is being able to plug-in a new Database without 
writing or debugging new Java code. This is also the main objection to JDO. 
Some users will be mantaining and developing XSLT transformations, and 
filling metadata / data informations missing.

The end Goal can be something like an XML distributed data system with 
reliable data storages (queries and statistics) into various databases.

Obviously I need various level of help ....

Is there anybody interested in opening the discussion on architecture, 
metadata mapping and migration, and so on ?

PS: I've seen post of Eric.Jain@isb-sib.ch in october are you still 
interested talking ?
