In this chapter, we consider the application of MS4 Me™ to data engineering for complex data and interest-based data distribution in which data is targeted to the consumer’s interests. We discussed mappings of Pruned Entity Structures, in the form of XML documents, based on underlying System Entity Structures. Then we show how you can develop simulation models that implement such mappings and exchange XML documents in the manner of interest-based data distribution. Distributed simulation implementations that employ the DEVS protocol (Chap.  9) and data distribution services (Chap.  10) can deploy such models to provide the basis for information exchange based on the concepts of interest-based distribution.
