Configuration of Java software using Castor

Geoff Mant & Richard Woolliscroft

Castor is an Open Source framework for data binding between Java object schemas, XML files and SQL databases. The framework allows mapping of persistent information between these environments. Such information may be stored in an xml file or database in a form that describes data held in objects in the Java environment. A Java program may then instantiate objects directly from the xml or database. This allows the programmer to move information simply and quickly into a programme while having the benefits of storing the data in an XML or database environment. In terms of data acquisition, this information could be for beamline components or software configuration. The use of Castor within the GDA, the data acquisition software being developed jointly between the Daresbury and Diamond, will be discussed.
