Exchanging Policies between Web Service Entities using Rule Languages

Nima Kaviani, Dragan Gasevic, Marek Hatala, Gerd Wagner, Ty Mey Eap
2007 2007 IEEE Congress on Services (Services 2007)  
Combination of these two properties makes Web rule languages an appropriate medium to make a hybrid model of representing both contexts and rules of a policy-aware system, such as a web service.  ...  We show how the concepts of the KAoS and Rei policy languages can be transformed to R2ML and then from R2ML to the other policy languages.  ...  Each R2ML derivation rule is also equivalent to one policy rule. Therefore, converting a policy from Rei to KAoS or R2ML may result in having more than one KAoS policy or R2ML rule.  ...

Web Rule Languages to Carry Policies

Nima Kaviani, Dragan Gasevic, Marek Hatala, Gerd Wagner
2007 Eighth IEEE International Workshop on Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks (POLICY'07)  
We also show how R2ML elements can model the concepts and elements of different policy languages and assist systems with diverse policies with their interactions.  ...  The Logic of Transformation Providing transformations from Rei and KAoS to R2ML and then from R2ML to KAoS or Rei, as we mentioned before, is not just a straightforward keyword matching using lookup tables  ...  We shorten the discussion at this point, but note that we have implemented transformations from Rei and KAoS to R2ML and also from R2ML to Rei and KAoS using XSLT which fully follow mapping rules discussed  ...
