Aligning ontology-based development with service oriented systems

Jun Shen, Ghassan Beydoun, Graham Low, Lijuan Wang
2014 Future generations computer systems  
This paper argues for placing ontologies at the centre of the software development life cycle for distributed component-based systems and, in particular, for service-oriented systems.  ...  In addition, a peer-to-peer-based service selecting and composing tool is suggested as a way of supporting the process.  ...  In order to effectively enhance service quality for accessibility in a P2P network, we herein consider the geographic property about the peer and incorporate it into the QoSProperty Class as an extension  ...

A Conceptual Framework for Ubiquitously Sharing Heterogeneous Patient Information among Autonomous Healthcare Providers

Fahad Al-Naydi, Jemal H. Abbawajy, Mustafa Matt Ders
2007 2007 International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE'07)  
The proposed approach is based on ontologies, mobile agents and peer-to-peer technology for bringing together autonomous heterogeneous and highly distributed health care facilities.  ...  This paper proposes a framework to ubiquitously share patient medical information among geographically distributed healthcare providers.  ...  Also, a great number of agent platforms are deployed for accessing databases. We use an agent for each data set maintained by a given peer.  ...

2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We introduce a novel view on how to deal with the problems of semantic interoperability in distributed systems.  ...  This view is based on the concept of emergent semantics, which sees both the representation of semantics and the discovery of the proper interpretation of symbols as the result of a self-organizing process  ...  Section 3 illustrates how techniques drawn from distributed databases and peer data management systems can be relevant in an emergent semantics scenario.  ...

2003 SIGMOD record  
We employ a service-oriented approach, in that data are encapsulated in services. Direct querying of data is also supported by an XML-based query language.  ...  Our goal is to develop a data management system for modeling, indexing and querying data hosted by such massively distributed, autonomous and possibly mobile peers.  ...  In DBGlobe, the data of each peer are made publicly available through services, that is, access to data stored locally at each peer is achieved by invoking an appropriate service.  ...
