DataFinder is designed as a client for any WebDAV server. WebDAV is an extension of the HTTP protocol and is used for data transfer and managing descriptive metadata. Any web server can be used with WebDAV extension.
With the help of scripts, it is possible to perform a multitude of actions from DataFinder - download data, start software for calculations based on the downloaded data, automatically store the results and if necessary convert the data with external software. Scripts can also be used to extract values from input or output files and automatically add them to the files as descriptive metadata. Another important application for scripts is the automatic migration of existing data to data management.
