The BioCASe Provider Software is an XML data binding middleware for publishing data from a relational database to an information network. It is agnostic of the data model used for data publication and can be used in conjunction with any conceptual schema. However, its main field of application is the publication of occurrence data from specimen or observational databases to primary biodiversity information networks such as the BioCASe network (http://www.biocase.org) and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (http://www.gbif.org). After installing BioCASe and configuring it for a given database, the published information will be accessible as a BioCASe web service, which means it can be retrieved with BioCASe protocol requests.
