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 turn into an important and important task for company, engineering, and clinical businesses because the movement to carrier orientated structure and net companies strikes into complete swing. particularly, the USA division of safeguard is mandating that every one of its organizations and contractors suppose a defining presence at the Net-centric international info Grid. This e-book offers the 1st sensible 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's not adequate by itself. The strategy during this publication addresses severe pursuits resembling making a unmarried illustration for a number of functions, designing versions able to aiding dynamic strategies, and harmonizing legacy information versions for web-based co-existence. The process is predicated at the method Entity constitution (SES) that is a well-defined constitution, method, and functional instrument with the entire performance of UML (Unified Modeling Language) and few of the drawbacks. The SES originated within the formal illustration of hierarchical simulation types. So it offers an axiomatic formalism that allows automating the improvement of XML dtds and schemas, composition and decomposition of enormous information types, and research of commonality between structures.

Zeigler and Hammond contain a number positive factors to profit their readers. usual language, graphical and XML sorts of SES specification are hired to permit mapping of legacy meta-data. genuine global examples and case reports supply perception into info engineering and try out assessment in numerous program domain names. Comparative info is supplied on recommendations of ontologies, modeling and simulation, introductory linguistic history, and aid thoughts let programmers to paintings with complex instruments within the region. the web site of the Arizona middle for Integrative Modeling and Simulation, co-founded by means of Zeigler in 2001, presents hyperlinks to downloadable software program to accompany the e-book.

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