gLite AMGA metadata catalogue for Oracle
AMGA is a generic metadata catalogue that is intended
to provide access to relational data for a wide range of
applications. The main features of the AMGA catalogue are high
performance access to relational databases, especially on WAN
connections. An SQL-like query language providing most of the
features of modern SQL dialects provides complex joins and includes
string and mathematical functions. This query language serves to
hide the differences of various vendor dialects of SQL and is
translated into the correct dialect of the back-end. In addition
this query language allows to implement a fine grained access
control, which is based on the built-in support for user and group
management. VOMS groups and roles are supported.
