New Semantic Integration Blog…

September 7, 2010

I have recently created a secondary and more specialised blog called ‘Semantic Integration Therapy‘ given my focus is now beginning to shift to this particular discipline. Semantic Integration in my terminology and context relates to achieving more effective application integration and SOA solutions by extending the traditional integration contract (XSD and informal documentation) with a more sementically aware mechanism. As such I’m now deep-diving into the use of XMLSchema pluse Schematron, RDF, OWL and commercial tooling such as Progress DXSI. There is a heavy overlap with the Semantic Web Community, but my focus is moreso on the transactional integration space within the Enterprise, as opposed to the holistic principles of the third generation or semantic web.
