In this paper, we briefly describe the implementation of various Open Geospatial Consortium Web Service Interface Standards in Oracle Spatial 11g. We highlight how we utilize Oracle’s implementation of OASIS Web Services Security (WSS) to provide a robust security framework for these OGC Web Services. We also discuss our future direction in supporting OGC Web Service Interface Standards. In addition to the mandated XML interfaces, Oracle Spatial WFS, Oracle Spatial CSW and Oracle Spatial OpenLS also support SOAP interfaces. To improve performance, Oracle Spatial WFS and Oracle Spatial CSW also implement caching mechanism to support retrieving records from a single query across different web requests. Below, we describe each of supported OGC Web Services in Oracle Spatial. Due to space limits, we will emphasize Oracle Spatial WFS support to illustrate our unique implementation.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
