OMS 3 essentials

OMS3 stands for Object Modelling System version 3. Now it has also a server-side companion called Cloud Service Integration platform, CSIP. You can find information about OMS3 here:
For more general information you can browse the various dedicated posts in this blog.
For running it, you have to perform various installations:

  • Java. GEOframe and OMS are written in Java and they require to have installed Java on your computer. Here you can find instructions to install Java on your computer. OMS need Java 8 JDK. Please note that you need the Java Development Toolkit (JDK) installed not the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). The official Oracle's pages are here but we now want to use AdoptOpenJDK (see why here).
There are various ways to use OMS. The most important two are using Docker or using the OMSConsole (the latter is not really up-to-date). Please notice that the OMS console still works for Java 8, while the Docker version can work with Java 11.
The rational for a components-based modelling system can be found with the material of the Winter School (OMS/Jupyterlab) the includes also some videos (same material of the Winter School page): 

Examples (All the material in the .zip files. Notebooks in /docs folder) 
More detailed exercises and information can be downloaded from the OMS3 site.
