Data Integration & User Interaction with Open Standards
Open Standards and the W3C
On November 12, 1990 Sir Tim Berners-Lee @timberners_lee submitted a paper that would change the world, this paper was the WorldWideWeb: Proposal for a HyperText Project. Sir Tim Berners-Lee leads the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The W3C is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. Led by Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C’s mission is to lead the Web to its full potential. The W3C is having it’s very first Developer’s Conference (Free Streaming Video Available) #W3Conf @w3cConf on November 15 – 16, 2011, “W3Conf Developer Conference“.
Data and Services Integration
Integration of heterogeneous data and services has always been a concern for creators and managers of services. With the emergence of the Web, the need for reusing data and services became even stronger, as the number of available services raised.
Cloud-based services are also created using different paradigms and present the same challenges as the ones found in Enterprise Services, or on the Open Web, and the opportunity to create mashups of services using different models.
There is currently extensive deployment experience with Web Services; the Semantic Web is more mature; and the XML Stack has become ubiquitous. The increasing use of JSON-based services and Cloud-based computing combined with experience and maturity of the XML-based services and of the Semantic Web technologies suggests that now is a good time to find ways to bridge and combine these various technologies to make a coherent platform for future business and technical work. Additional information, reports, and presentations are available from this W3C Workshop. Continue reading How to Create an XML AJAX App with Open Standards
