This is a bundle of a set of improvements and new features to make service discovery from within Taverna easier, mainly to improve the "Available services" panel in different ways. Supplements
TAV-73 defines how the service panel list can be saved and loaded.
TAV-29 asks for different "service profiles", so that say a micro analyst can choose to only see his relevant services. This is a specialisation of
TAV-73, with a central location for those profiles, could probably be the service registry or the portal, or simply a web page.
TAV-78 adds more information about the services in the service panel itself, an extra flip with information on parameters and other stuff that is available from the service provider.
Search and FETA:
TAV-97 defines how FETA service search can be integrated in the service panel.
TAV-79 asks for a API (more specifically, an SPI) for a general way to plug in service information providers like Feta
TAV-53 is not about the service panel, but about a service portal for more advance browsing, annotation and searching of services. However, once we have a portal we can probably make more fancy service search widgets to include, such as "Newest services", "My services" ( TAV-73), "Micro-array services" (TAV-29), "Most reliable services", etc. This doesn't mean that the other requirements will have to wait for a service portal, but that they can later be integrated with this portal.
