Semantically-enabled Heterogeneous service Architecture and Platforms Engineering

Semantically-enabled Heterogeneous service Architecture and Platforms Engineering

The SHAPE project aims to support the development and realization of enterprise systems based on a Semantically-enabled Heterogeneous service Architecture (SHA). SHA extends Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) with semantics and heterogeneous infrastructures (Web services, Agents, Semantic Web Services, P2P and Grid) under a unified service oriented approach. To achieve this the consortium of the SHAPE project will develop a Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) tool-supported methodology and will take an active role in the standardization of metamodels and languages for SHA.

The main challenges addressed by the SHAPE project are:

  • How to map the flow of business logic and data to services and functionality in a platform independent way?
  • How to integrate the various models of processes, requirements, services and functions in a common model that can also be adopted by individual projects and their implementation environment?
  • How to manage such models and provide links between them that can be used for service composition or managing changes?

The SHAPE project will promote a new development paradigm with a higher degree of involvement of joint users and development communities through minimising the gap between business and system modelling, in particular by lifting the system specification models to a higher platform independent level.
