project title:

Intelligent Framework for Generating Open (Adaptable) Development Platforms for Web-Service Enabled Applications Using Semantic Web Technologies, Distributed Decision Support Units and Multi-Agent-Systems

project duration: 30 months

project start: 1st August 2004



The primary project objective is to develop an ICT framework, which enables software and service providers (SMEs, RESs, INDs) to generate and establish open, extensible and reconfigurable development platforms for Web-Service applications. Established in such a way the open platforms consist of coupled and linked INFRAWEBS units, whereby each unit provides tools and adaptable system components to analyse, design, conjointly compose, and maintain services (SW services) within their whole life cycle. Due to the versatile and modular structure, the proposed framework enables the handling of a broad class of services.
The sub objectives for this project are to develop a software framework to:

  • provide a comfortable and "easy to use" knowledge brokering unit,
  • used within a collaborative workflow and platform environment for analysis, design and composition of SW services
  • supplemented with secure and privacy preserving run-time and maintenance tools.


Expected Results

These objectives will be achieved by developing software components consisting of:

  • an ontology and similarity based organizational memory and tools for extracting and retrieving specific knowledge and information for SW services, and
  • a P2P agent-based interoperability environment (Distributed SW service repositories) for CBR based design and composition of SW services (CASE-tool), and
  • a run-time module for supervision (Executor, QoS-Broker) and maintenance considering security and privacy aspects
