A component that is in development means that the Egeria community is still building the function. The code is added continuously in small pieces to help the review and socialization process. It may not run, or do something useful - it only promises not to break other function. Expect to find git issues describing the end state.
Software Developer Open Metadata Access Service (OMAS)¶
The Software Developer OMAS provides APIs and events for software developer tools and applications that help developers make good use of the standards and best practices defined for the data landscape.
It supports the documentation of the component structure of a software capability and the ability to link it to the digital services it supports for the business.
As the software developer works on the implementation, the Software Developer OMAS supports APIs to search for data structure implementation snippets based on search criteria such as glossary terms and/or language. It also provides information about the most appropriate data sources to use for particular situations along with details of reference data values and sets. Using these services augments the software component model for the software capability.
Finally it enables the documentation of the packaging as the components are moved into the DevOps Pipeline.
