(Hi John & Dan, I'm moving this thread to the O2 mailing list)

On the topic of O2 Findings Schema, at the moment O2 has a number of data
importers (i.e. ability to load data from external tools) and 2 exporters
(i.e to save findings in memory to disk). See more details here:
http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_O2_Platform/WIKI/O2_Documentation#O2_Convertors

Internally everything comes to O2 Internal Findings format, which in
essence, is very similar to John's idea for OFS (which is interesting since
we were both working on it separately :)  ). John can you share your current
very-draft spec for OFS (Open Findings Schema)

Once the data is loaded (and filtered/manipulated) and we need to save it,
currently O2 supports the IBM/Ounce Ozsmt format (via XML Serialization )
and the O2Findings format (via Binary Serialization). The Ozsmt XML save is
actually faster than the Binary one (at the time I did not find a way to
save O2Findings using XML due to use of Interfaces in O2Findings
classes/Interfaces (... meanwhile I found a way to do it...so the next
version should support it))

Note that one of the powers of the O2Findings format is the ability to
create & manipulate the findings (in large numbers) once they are in that
format in memory. I want to move into the OFS as soon as possible, since
that will really allow O2 (and its APIs) to be a communication standard
between multiple tools.

Dan, can you send me an example of the type of data you guys are currently
creating?
