1 Project of the Darmstadt University of Technology within the competence network New Services, Standardization, Metadata (bmb+f) Stephan Körnig Ali Mahdoui Julia Stoll Rudi Schmiede A Generic Framework for the Exchange and Usage of Semantically Enriched Information

2 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Outline Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

3 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Motivation Known problems for integration –Distribution of information / Heterogeneity –Development technology-driven / short cycles of innovation Web Services (W3C) as a promising standard Framework for scientific use of information is missing Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

4 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Standards Standardization as a part of the problem –Standardization is research –Standardization of own developments gives return on investment –Standards: high/low level of details Missing specs for Digital Library- Services –Background dl-konzepte: concepts for the improvement of scholarly information systems –Domain specific solutions required Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

5 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Requirements Scope: scholarly information within scientific net(work)s (Technical & organizational) support of distributed systems Light-weight technology Support of dynamic changes Support of a (domain specific) view on resources Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

6 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Goals Specification of DL-Services Generic Framework supporting the implementation of scientific –portals –peer2peer networks –workspaces Organizational issues Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

7 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Web Services - Basics Again: this is about the W3C standard Remote procedure calls via HTTP Supports interaction of distributed, loose coupled and reusable software components Integration of legacy systems / middle- ware for heterogeneous networks Openness: Machine readable description available (WSDL) – accessible via public (UDDI-) Registries Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

8 Provision of Web Services Service ProviderService Requestor Discovery Agency (UDDI) Service- Descriptions (WSDL) publish interact find

9 Scenario: Web Services based Infrastructure for Digital Libraries UDDI- Registry Existing web services Newsservice Scientific database OAI based document harvester XML/SOAP Network- node 1 XML/SOAP WSDL- descriptions Network- node 2 XML/SOAP Network- node n XML/SOAP

10 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim WSDL – Limitations of the Standard Still undergoing changes Tries to support different paradigms –Object orientation –Functional programming –(Relational) database access Some transformations will need support by specialized wrappers Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

11 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim DL-Services for Scientists Services: logical view Generalization of Access and Formats Type system / Ontologies Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

12 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim DL-Services (logical view) Service (users perspective) Types of services Types of material Metamodel Functionality model and implementation Service Provision (Web-Service) Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

13 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Access and Formats Standardization of access Types of services and material Metamodel of the framework Standardization of formats/protocols Interface specifications WSDL descriptions with different level of generalization Task Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

14 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim KOS related DL- Services Services allowing access to thesauri / ontologies or concepts (eg Query expansion) More use cases? Problem in the context of our framework: Modeling with RDFS/OWL does not integrate into XML Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

15 Framework (logical view) XML-Repository Metamodel of Services Support Services Service > WSDL-Service Support Generator Service- Localization Dispatcher Webserver (Cocoon2) Java-classes (framework application) Service creation and assembly Transaction- management Data processed by Services

16 Framework (instantiation)

17 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Development Activities Utilizing upcoming standards or specifications (e.g. JXTA) Ability to support the different types of use cases (portal, P2P, workspace) Focus on application supporting the maintenance of content within a scientific portal for science nets Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse

18 NKOS Workshop, Trondheim Cooperation/Clearinghouse Importance of people behind standardization effort Cooperation on a national level (network of competence) Utilizing international accepted standards Open for cooperation Motivation / Goals of the Project Web Services Digital Library Services for Scientists Applications Cooperation / Clearinghouse
