Description : a Web Processing Service (WPS) framework
ZOO is a WPS (Web Processing Service) open source project. It provides
an Open Gis Consortium (OGC) WPS compliant developer-friendly
framework to create and chain WPS Web services. ZOO is made of three
parts: ZOO Kernel, ZOO Services, ZOO API.
The ZOO Kernel is written in C language, but supports several common
programming languages in order to connect to numerous libraries and
above all to simplify the Web service end-developer's job.
A ZOO service is a link composed of a metadata file (.zcfg) and the
code for the corresponding implementation. Services contain the
algorithms and functions, and can now be implemented in C/C++,
call and chain the ZOO Services easily, and adds the capability to
define logic in the chaining of your ZOO Services.
