Milestone 32 was achieved in late September 2021. The ESAP prototype is now capable querying the WP3 Open-source scientific Software and Service Repository (OSSR) for available software and presenting that to users so that it may be selected and launched through the ESAP interface. The software available in this will way will dynamically increase as further projects are added to the OSSR. We expect to make this functionality available through the ESAP test.

This milestone lays the groundwork for further work on advanced software selection: future versions of ESAP will build on the metadata available in the OSSR to provide functionality which helps the user identify workflows which are of relevance to them based on the data they have selected, the type of processing they wish to perform, the available computing facilities, and so on.
