Abstract

The imperative demand on the description of semantic metadata and the processing of real-time data presents unique challenge to Grid Metadata Service. Grid Monitoring Architecture (GMA), which is a framework for dynamic data management, is limited by its conventional interface of relational database and therefore fails to address the problem of interoperability. Faced with the problem of metadata publishing in GMA, we present a new publish-harvest protocol for semantic metadata called GMA-PSMH (Grid Monitoring Architecture-Protocol for Semantic Metadata Harvesting) by modifying the OAI-PMH metadata harvest framework. As part of the Semantic Metadata Service Project in Peking University, the associated dynamic metadata management framework is then implemented according to the above protocol. At the end, we make the conclusion and overview the future work.
