MODELING DATA INTEROPERABILITY FOR E-SERVICES

Jose C. Delgado

Abstract

In global, distributed systems, services evolve independently and there is no dichotomy between compile and run-time. This has severe consequences. Static data typing cannot be assumed. Data typing by name and reference semantics become meaningless. Garbage collection cannot be used in this context and (references to) services can fail temporarily at one time or another. Classes, inheritance and instantiation also don’t work, because there is no coordinated global compile-time. This paper proposes a service interoperability model based on structural conformance to solve these problems. The basic modeling entity is the resource, which can be described by structure and by behavior (service). We contend that this model encompasses and unifies layers found separate in alternative models, in particular Web Services and RESTful services.
