As some of you might have noticed,
some skynodes have disappeared from OpenSkyQuery.net.
The reason is because they were no longer functional and we needed to
clean up openskyquery for the AAS held this week. So, I "deleted"
them from the STScI/JHU registry database to avoid problems.
The good news is, I have created the very much requested test environment
where you can register your skynodes and check whether or not they are
working prior to publish them in the main registry.
Most of the nodes that disappeared from OpenSkyQuery.net will show up in
this test environment. If you are missing your node and you want to
reestablish it, please let me know.
We believe we didn't change anything in the portal that made those nodes
fail or not available (the ADQL version is still 0.7.4 and we asumme the
same SkyNode WS Interface) but we might be wrong. So please check your
skynode services and let us know.
The important URLs are
SkyNodes will show up in this site where you can throughly test them.
(note the FT at the end of registry)
You can use this site to register those skynodes you want to test
Hope this will help. If you find any problems please let us know
