Babe is a framework for efficient data brokering. The goal for Babe is to provide end to end reliable brokering of diverse data types, independent of the transport protocol being used. Although a daemon is being developed for managing brokering, the framework provides an API so that pieces of the core can be used independently of the daemon. The modular design of Babe allows people to develop new input, output, and format modules easily. New modules are loaded into the core based on config file options, so using a new module does not require a user to recompile any applications. Babe allows data types to be translated and forwarded. Currently we are researching methods for doing semantic type mapping to deal with translations from loosely typed data sets to strongly typed data sets. Babe is still in the planning phase.
