Background Materials for U-SAY

Framework 7 ICT

The homepage for the ICT section is on http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/

You need to download the 'ICTWork Programme 2007-08' in your preferred language.

A one-page summary of the relevant priority is contained here: Objective_ICT-2007_1_2_Service_and_Software_Architectures,_Infrastructures_and_Engineering.doc: This is our target Objective 1.2.

Architecture Description Languages

Wikipedia has an excellent page on the subject : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Architecture_description_language

The one I was considering is Alfa on http://sunset.usc.edu/~softarch/Alfa/index.html

A good short paper illustrating Alfa is available here AlfaPhotoAlbumExampleUsccse2004-503.pdf: A photo album example developed in Alfa

I see the role of the ADL as a meta-language describing the topology of the overall user assembly "drawing", and the way individual services are connected with each other. This is then integrated with further specification of the services being connected, and the compiled "WSDL++" is used to procure the right services. More of this on the GenericScenario page.
