Message Servers

Example messaging tasks

  • Interacting with the store
    • Upload, re-upload a track
    • Get track revision history
    • Minimal search functionality: GBrowse
  • Submit a job (batch of jobs?) to pre-layout a track on lots of different zoom levels. Ping me when done
    • Rules to make individual tiles once layout is complete...

Less sure about this one now:

  • Submit a "classic GBrowse" page rendering job. Specify co-ordinates, zoom level, tracks, everything. Acknowledge that job is pending; give me a callback when job is finished
    • Allow me to check the job status (pending/running/done/etc) or modify/delete the job parameters while it is pending
