Dynamic Service Oriented Architectures Through Semantic Technology
The behavior of Department of Defense (DoD) Command and Control (C2) services is typically embedded in executable code, providing static functionality that is difficult to change. As the complexity and tempo of world events increase, C2 systems must move to a new paradigm that supports the ability to dynamically modify service behavior in complex, changing environments. Separation of service behavior from executable code provides the foundation for dynamic system behavior and agile response to real-time events. In this paper we show how semantic rule technology can be applied to express service behavior in data, thus enabling a dynamic service oriented architecture.
