Taverna has now moved to the Apache Software Foundation. For updated information, see Apache Taverna (incubating).

Web service Data Proxy

The Web service Data Proxy overcomes the problem of Web services that return large items of data causing Taverna 1.7.x to struggle or fail due to memory constraints. It solves this problem by allowing the user to select specific data elements for referencing, leading to the data to be stored on the proxy and the Web service SOAP response is rewritten to replace the data itself with a URL to the actual data.

The Web service Data Proxy is available for download.

Many of the issues that make the Webservice Data Proxy necessary for Taverna 1.7.x are overcome in Taverna 2.x.
