Jody, Thank you very much for your quick response and nice guidance!

 

Hi GeoTools team,

 

This is Jenny from Teradata. I am going to add Teradata plugin for users to visualize geospatial data that are stored in Teradata Database using Udig, which will be about the same as the PostGIS plugin.  As Jody suggested, I’d better have the raw geospatial part inside GeoTools SVN from the beginning. May I ask for geotools SVN access (read and write)? The Teradata plugin inside geotools will be about the same as the PostGIS plugin too.

 

Thank you very much!

 

Jenny

Welcome back Jenny:

 

I sent off the request to admin@refractions.net; so that should get sorted out shortly.

 

Now what this does is give you svn access to:

http://svn.refractions.net/udig/udig/community/

 

In there we ask you to create a new folder with you name (or your project name if you are shy). We tend to prefer developer name as communities are built of people.

 

Within that folder you can do what you want; including storing some geotools DataStore code along side a udig plugin..

 

Here is one that shows a usual breakdown with two "plugin" and "features" folders:

http://svn.refractions.net/udig/udig/community/wps/

 

An example of having an extra geotools directory ..... here is one with a "gt" directory in a branch (the developers used their own maven build for this folder - and the code was copied to geotools at the end of the day).

http://svn.refractions.net/udig/udig/branches/ows3/

 

The process of getting svn access to geotools is no more bother then for uDig (ie read the developers guide and send an email). So you may wish to do your geotools work there from day one - allowing you to keep svn history).

Hi Jody and team,

 

This is Jenny from Teradata. I talked to you several months ago about adding Teradata plugin for users to visualize geospatial data that are stored in Teradata Database using Udig.  I have got approvals from our company for using Udig and contributing the Teradata Plugin source code back. Finally I got time to start working on it. And I am very glad to join you.

 

The Teradata plugin will be very similar to the PostGIS Plugin.  Eventually it should have a plugin in Udig but also another plugin for the raw geospatial stuff that should be contributed to GeoTools.

 

It seems good to start from building a community plugin in Udig with a separate module for the raw geospatial stuff that may go into GeoTools later. Could you please advise better ways if it does not seem right to you?

 

Could you please grant me access to Udig SVN?

 

Thank you very much!

 

Jenny
