Service interoperability approach

The agent-based service interoperability approach is intended to act as a framework into which existing and new interoperability technologies can be inserted to achieve a higher level of service interoperability in the widely distributed and dynamic environment.
The longer-term objectives of this approach are:
-To provide a reference model for semantic interoperability in open environments into which different technologies can be inserted and which can be reused in different technology environments (agent systems, GRIDs, eBusiness Frameworks and so forth).
-Distil out the major aspects of service-service interaction that must be accounted before we are finally able to develop fully automated spontaneous semantic interaction between on-line systems.
-Act as a complement to existing standards by identifying how they can be combined and which areas remain to be covered.
The approach is defined within the project at three levels:
-A top-level abstract interoperability model for communication; -Bindings (Reifications) for each level of the stack to a number of selected communication technologies;
-A set of operational models that describes the resulting technology models is applied in practice.
