Telecom Bretagne is responsible for developing a French validator and demonstrator system for the UsiXML project relying on the European maritime Surveillance project. Developers needed a database technology to provide both the objects of the simulation plus the operational information captured during the experimental or effective mission.
Versant provides fast navigational access and high performance when storing and retrieving complex simulation data. The database technology provides numerous language APIs, and object-oriented applications, whether written in Smalltalk, Python, JAVA and C++, can share a common set of structured objects.
The UsiXML partners have developed a new XML-compliant User Interface Description Language (UIDL) on top of the existing UsiXML and IDEAL 2.0 standards. The new processes will considerably simplify software development and guarantee interoperability and maintainability.
