Product Description

The caDSR APIs allow developers to build an application to access caDSR metadata and search the database, or to retrieve caDSR Metadata to customize local data collection applications (metadata driven application development). There are two packages in the caDSR API, one for accessing the caDSR domain objects, and one for accessing the caDSR UML project domain objects. A convenient way to become familiar with the caDSR APIS is through the caDSR Domain Class Browser.
