How to simplify SOA
A few weeks back, we did a short news story announcing the approval
of Content Assembly Mechanism
as a standard by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards.
Now, David RR Webber, one of the developers of CAM, has posted an article illustrating what CAM could be used for
, in the July/Aug 2007 issue of SOA Magazine
The trouble is most organizations' schemas are written by developers and tend to be obtuse to outside users wishing to reuse the data. CAM abstracts the organizational rules and other content in such a way that they can be understood by business analysts and general staff members. It also helps in version control, so that when the source of the data updates its schema, the external systems that use that data won't break.
