TAP Library 1.0 beta

TAP (Table Access Protocol) is a protocol defined by the IVOA (see which lets interrogating an astronomical service in order to get astronomical data as table data. Several query languages may be used but ADQL must be supported. In the same way, query results can be returned in different formats but at least in VOTable.

This library is a convenient implementation of a TAP service which already implements all behaviors and functionalities described by the IVOA Recommendation 27th March 2010 (v1.0). It is designed to be as quick and easy to use as possible so that the developer of a TAP service has not to worry with the TAP management.

The ADQL Library (v1.0) and the UWS Library (v3.1) are included in this library.

Since the 12th October 2011, the beta version of this library is available at taptuto. A complete documentation will be soon available at the same URL !
