Modeling & Simulation-Based Data Engineering: Introducing Pragmatics into Ontologies for Net-Centric Information Exchange

Modeling & Simulation-Based Data Engineering: Introducing Pragmatics into Ontologies for Net-Centric Information Exchange

Bernard P. Zeigler, Phillip E. Hammonds


facts Engineering has develop into an important and demanding job for company, engineering, and medical companies because the movement to provider orientated structure and net companies strikes into complete swing. particularly, the U.S. division of protection is mandating that each one of its firms and contractors suppose a defining presence at the Net-centric worldwide details Grid. This booklet presents the 1st useful method of information engineering and modeling, which helps interoperabililty with shoppers of the knowledge in a carrier- orientated architectures (SOAs). even supposing XML (eXtensible Modeling Language) is the lingua franca for such interoperability, it isn't enough by itself. The process during this e-book addresses severe targets similar to making a unmarried illustration for a number of purposes, designing types able to helping dynamic procedures, and harmonizing legacy facts versions for web-based co-existence. The technique relies at the approach Entity constitution (SES) that's a well-defined constitution, technique, and sensible software with the entire performance of UML (Unified Modeling Language) and few of the drawbacks. The SES originated within the formal illustration of hierarchical simulation versions. So it presents an axiomatic formalism that permits automating the advance of XML dtds and schemas, composition and decomposition of huge facts versions, and research of commonality between structures.

Zeigler and Hammond comprise a number of positive aspects to profit their readers. normal language, graphical and XML varieties of SES specification are hired to permit mapping of legacy meta-data. genuine global examples and case reports supply perception into facts engineering and try out assessment in quite a few program domain names. Comparative info is supplied on options of ontologies, modeling and simulation, introductory linguistic historical past, and aid concepts let programmers to paintings with complex instruments within the quarter. the web site of the Arizona heart for Integrative Modeling and Simulation, co-founded via Zeigler in 2001, presents hyperlinks to downloadable software program to accompany the booklet.

* the single functional advisor to integrating XML and net providers in facts engineering
* Introduces linguistic degrees of interoperability for powerful details exchange
* Covers the interoperability criteria mandated through nationwide and overseas firms
* enhances Zeigler's vintage thought OF MODELING AND SIMULATION
