Seismic DDMS - Exxonmobil perspective - Domain API and other details
Input from Brad Yates (Exxonmobil) Discussion involving EA, Operator, Vendors on 19-Aug-2021.
Early presentation indicated that there will indeed be one common overlying API (irrespective of choice of VDS or ZGY). That would help simple web applications. Vendors may then be able to create application faster, by using the common API.
Such common API should be lowest common denominator as some features of openVDS may not be supported by openZgy.
Desktop applications may still need to use native oZgy or oVDS libraries for read/write, for performance reasons and also in suitable language (ex: C+, Python).
@doniger suggested that we wait to receive clear picture of future Seismic DDMS (as per recommended architecture principles). And then re-evaluate gaps, if any.
