We describe a generic ECA service for implementing behavior using heterogeneous languages in the Semantic Web. The module details and implements our recent work on an ontology and language concept for a modular approach to ECA rules in the Semantic Web. The ECA level provides generic functionality independent from the actual languages and semantics of event detection, queries, and actions.
