About Transport Service

The Transport Service provides functionality for transporting and transforming PDS products. The core functionality for this service is satisfied by the Apache OODT Web Grid Product Server and includes a handler for interfacing with the Registry Service and a handler for interfacing with the Search Service. It is typically invoked from hyperlinks embedded in the results returned by the Search Service.

The Transport Service is composed by the following components:

  • The Apache OODT Web Grid servlet, which provides a general-purpose web container for answering transport requests formulated as HTTP GET or POST requests.
  • The Apache OODT Product Server, which routes each transport request to a handler that interfaces with the Registry Service or Search Service.
