CDM Library API

This page is a list of CdmLibrary API functionality requested by developers of applications accessing the CDM, i.e. the TaxonomicEditor or the CdmPortal. To request new functionality, please write a Java signature and a brief description (optional) of what is needed, then contact the CDM team (Markus Döring or Andreas Müller).
