SISS in a box

For a quick setup to play with, we provide SISS in a box(virtual machine) which can be played using VM ware player. This release has been tested using VM ware player 5.02. Once SISS have finished loading up, its IP address is displayed. Key in the IP address into a web browser and it will bring you to the SISS in a box home page which will provide all necessary login details and instructions.

SISS Package Release Notes (Package Highlights)

PID Service:

SISS has moved from the use of URNs to http URIs for the identification of persistent resources. This is in line with practice broadly on the web. The issues around this have been long debated, and are documented in numerous papers particularly from W3C. An OGC whitepaper summarizes the issues, and convinced OGC to make the transition three years ago. The basic argument for preferring http URIs is pragmatic. While there is some appeal in principle to separating identification from location, it requires an apparatus to find resources with a given identifier, such as the old URN-resolver. In general, the knowledge of how to use the resolver requires an extra configuration step in any software that refers to resources using their identifier. In contrast, the method for resolving http identifiers is built in to most modern software environments. So the use of a http URI solves two problems at once: it is a text string assigned using rules which generally ensure they are unique, and it has a form which is recognized by most software and knows how to action it to retrieve the resource.

The persistence of the identifier is a separate concern. It depends on social processes, and is actually similar for both URIs and URNs. There is an additional step with URNs as the resolver service has to be kept up to date, synchronized with any changes to the locator.
