The Catalog Archive Server Jobs System, or CasJobs, is an online workbench for large scientific catalogs. It is designed to emulate and enhance local free-form query access in a web environment.
CasJobs provides both synchronous and asynchronous query execution, and a 'History' function records queries and their statuses. Each user gets a personalized, server-side database called 'MyDB', which enables persistent table, function, and procedure creation. MyDB data can be downloaded in a variety of formats and shared between users via the 'Groups' mechanism.
CasJobs provides multiple interface options, including a browser client and a java-based command line tool. It also offers SOAP-based web services for managing user accounts, jobs, user groups, and servers.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
