Fedora API Specification and Implementations

In 1998 when the original paper1 detailing the Fedora architecture was published there were many more open questions around the boundaries of responsibility of a Fedora repository and how the services the architecture could fit into the nascent repository application stack. In the subsequent 20 years, the maturation of both the software ecosystem surrounding a Fedora repository and the real-world requirements defined by the experience of our community’s use cases have clarified Fedora’s role in supporting the goals of preservation and access in the context of big data and performance at scale.

This understanding has resulted in the establishment of a well-specified application programming interface (API) that provides a stable layer of abstraction between Fedora clients and repository instances. In this way, alternate Fedora implementations suited for specific service profiles can all expose the same core of services to repository clients.

This panel will discuss the historical context in which the Fedora API Specification resides, the top-level aspects of and reflections from implementers of the specification.
