oral presentation Track 3 - Core Software Core Software


Giacomo Govi


The POOL software package has been successfully integrated with the three large experiment software frameworks of ATLAS, CMS and LHCb. This presentation will summarise the experience gained during these integration efforts and will try to highlight the commonalities and the main differences between the integration approaches. In particular we’ll discuss the role of the POOL object cache, the choice of the main storage technology in ROOT (tree or named objects) and approaches to collection and catalogue integration.
