A CONTENT ORIENTED ARCHITECTURE FOR CONSUMER-TO-BUSINESS E-COMMERCE

Joshua H. Greenberg, Douglas Dankel II, Borko Furht

Abstract

Consumer-to-Business (C2B) systems represent the future of eCommerce. Using natural language as a basis, and remaining keenly aware of its potential pitfalls, we describe a software specific communication model based on a new concept called Content Biased Language (CBL). It is shown that the requirements of a C2B system cannot be satisfied with anything less than the stretchability of a CBL. Once this fact has been established, the remainder of this paper discusses a representation for a CBL, as well as an architecture for utilizing that representation. This effort results in the description of a new software quality measure called stretchability, as well as the introduction of perspective domain graphs (PDGs), external open ontological type systems (EOOTS), and global and constituent systems. Finally, the discussion closes with the definition of a new distributed system design called the Content Oriented Architecture (COA).
