A New Reporting Web Application for IVOA Services Validation


Paris Astronomical Data Centre (PADC) develops data centre activitiespromoting the Virtual Observatory at Paris Observatory. Our implicationin the development of standards and our participation to the IVOA(International Virtual Observatory Alliance) led us to develop servicevalidators for DAL (Data Access Layer) protocols. For the last 6 years,we have been daily checking the compliance of the web services availablethrough the IVOA Registry. In this paper, we describe a new webapplication developed to provide feedback of that validation process todata providers. Thanks to that tool, the providers can access globalresults for each service type, or filter the results to display onlytheir services. In both cases, the users can retrieve service compliancestatistics as well as detailed error reports, and easily check the mostcommon errors found for their services. We expect that this new webapplication will help data providers improve the compliance of theirservices with IVOA standards. Moreover, this work provides an exhaustiveview of the overall health of IVOA services.
