Data Distribution Service RFP

Data Distribution Service

This RFP solicits proposals for an MDA specification describing the application-visible interface and behavior of a Data-Distribution Service (DDS) that supports a Data-Centric Publish-Subscribe (DCPS) for real-time systems and offers optionally a Data Local Reconstruction Layer (DLRL). The MDA specification should include how the application models data, how it interacts with the middleware to describe the communication and QoS requirements, how data is sent and received (relative to the QoS requirements), how the applications access to it and the kinds of feedback the application gets from the state of the middleware.

MOF 1.5 RTF

Meta Object Facility 1.5

MOF - The MetaObject Facility standardizes a metamodel for object oriented analysis and design, and a repository. (The CWM standardizes a metamodel for data modeling) Because they are based on the MOF metamodel, UML models can be freely passed from tool to tool using XMI - without the commonality of definition provided by the MOF, this would not be practical.

UML 2.0 Diagram Interchange RFP

Unified Modeling Language 2.0 Diagram Interchange

The Unified Modeling Language is a language for visualizing, specifying, constructing and documenting the artifacts of software systems. It is a general-purpose modeling language that can be used with all major object and component methods and applied to all application domains. The OMG adopted the UML 1.1 specification in November 1997. Since then UML Revision Task Forces have produced several minor revisions, the most recent being the UML 1.4 specification, which is to be adopted in early 2001. This Request for Proposal (RFP) is the 4th in a series of RFPs under the UML 2.0 umbrella. The first three RFPs have already been issued and focus on (a) UML Infrastructure (b) UML Superstructure and (c) OCL respectively. Please see www.omg.org/technology/uml for more information on OMG UML

UML 2.0 Superstructure RFP

Unified Modeling Language 2.0 Superstructure

This RFP solicits proposals for the following: Enable the modeling of structural patterns, such as component-based development and the specification of run-time architectures. Clarify the semantics of the generalization, dependency, and association relationships. Support encapsulation and scalability in behavioral modeling, in particular, for state machines and interactions. Remove restrictions on activity graph modeling due to the mapping to state machines.

UML Testing Profile RFP

Unified Modeling Language Testing Profile

To date, UML technology has focused primarily on the definition of system structure and behavior. With the approach towards system engineering according to model-driven architectures with automated code generation, the need for solid conformance testing, certification and branding is increased. However, UML provides limited means for describing test procedures within UML. This RFP solicits proposals for the following: (1) A UML testing profile based upon the UML metamodel or a MOF based meta-model for UML testing. (2) That enables the specification of tests for structural (static) and behavioral (dynamic) aspects of computational UML models, and (3) That is capable of inter-operation with existing test technologies for black box testing.

Competency RFP

Competency Framework

This RFP solicits proposals for standard interfaces for a competency framework. A competency framework will include interfaces to do the following: Support the maintenance of the metadata used to define the different types of competencies available. This includes information about how a particular kind of competency is rated, described, and compared to one another as well as the distinct recognition of the difference between authorization and privilege. Support the creation, categorization, and maintenance of a set of competencies created from the metadata types described above. Support the ability to create and maintain a set of competency evaluations for something. A set of competency evaluations is something's rating or score for a particular competency set (or subset). Support the ability to do gap analysis between two competency evaluations. A gap analysis is a numerical comparison that can be used to evaluate how closely one competency evaluation is to another.

Notification/JMS Interworking RFP

OMG Notification Service - J2EE Java Message Service Interworking Standards

The OMG standard for asynchronous publish-subscribe communications is the Notification Service, while in the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) standard, the Java Message Service (JMS) provides this capability. This document solicits proposals to enable interworking between the two standards, so that CORBA and Java objects (including EJB's) can communicate with each other asynchronously. This RFP solicits proposals for the following: Mappings between Notification and JMS message types. Reconciliation between the different qualities of service (QoS) provided by the Notification Service and JMS. Ability to maintain transactional message contexts across JMS and the Notification Service. Implementations which facilitate end-to-end messaging between Notification and JMS.
