Module::Build::Database was developed as part of the Atmospheric Composition Processing System, which works with the Science Investigator-Led Processing System for the Ozone Monitoring Instrument. The technology allows the user to distribute changes to the schema in a database alongside software that relies on the database.

The technology is specific to the Perl programming language, and specifically works with Perl modules that are distributed using Module::Build, a widely used distribution framework for Perl modules.

This work was done by Brian Duggan, Phil Durbin, and Curt Tilmes of Goddard Space Flight Center. For further information, contact the Goddard Technology Transfer Office at (301) 286-5810. GSC-16376-1
