Interoperability Middleware for Federated Enterprise Applications in web-Pilarcos

  • Conference paper

Summary

Participation in electronic business networks has become necessary for the success of enterprises. The web-Pilarcos B2B middleware is designed for lowering the cost of collaboration establishment and to facilitate management and maintenance of networks. The web-Pilarcos architecture and middleware addresses the interoperability of autonomous enterprise applications in inter-organisational context. The approach is a federated one: All business applications are developed independently, and the B2B middleware services are used to ensure that technical, semantic, and pragmatic interoperability is maintained in the business network. In the design, attention has been given to the dynamic aspects and evolution of the network. This paper discusses the concepts provided for application and business network creators, and the middleware knowledge for interoperability support.
