Discussion, 2008-10-15

Cartik, Jim, and Hilmar met to discuss web service requirements for the Phenoscape web application.


Term info

Text autocompletion

"Anatomy search"

Publication detail

This could potentially be handled by the term info service, if the client knew which properties to traverse from the publication to get the information it needed. This is a trade-off between general and more specific services.
