The Coordinated Data Analysis System (CDAS) Web services allow a software
developer to use CDAS services in their own application. If you are
not a software developer and simply want to use the existing web interface
to CDAS, then return to the
main CDAWeb page.
|End-of-Life (EOL) Notice|
|The CDAS SOAP web services are implemented with JAX-RPC technology (a Java Enterprise Edition [EE] specification). JAX-RPC was superseded by JAX-WS more than a decade ago. The CDAS SOAP web services were not re-implemented with JAX-WS because it created an entirely incompatabile API for clients and REST web services were becoming more popular than SOAP. With Oracle's transfer of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation, Java EE is becoming Jakarta EE. The current roadmap for Jakarta EE 9, has JAX-RPC eliminated in Q3 2020. This means that the CDAS SOAP web services will likely be eliminated in Q4 2020. Clients should migrate to the CDAS REST web services which provide all of the same functionality and some enhancements.|
If you are developing an application that requires science data from any of the data sets held by CDAS, then the CDAS Web services will provide an interface to the data for your application. Higher level Web services that perform additional processing of the data are expected to be added in the near future. The following describes how to utilize these Web services from your own application.
Questions or comments concerning these Web services should be sent to CDAS Feedback.
