Standardizing Hypertext: Where Next for OHP?
Over the last six years the Open Hypermedia Systems Working Group (OHSWG) has been working in a coordinated effort to produce a protocol which will allow components of an Open Hypermedia System to talk to one another in a standardised manner. In this paper we reflect on this work and the knowledge that has come out of it, evaluating the different approaches to standardisation in the light of our experiences. We discuss the problems we encountered and redefine the goals of the effort to be more realistic, presenting the Fundamental Open Hypermedia Model (FOHM) as an example of this more realistic approach. Finally we describe a possible future path that encompasses the research interests of the OHSWG while still leading ultimately to interoperability.

Abstract

Over the last six years the Open Hypermedia Systems Working Group (OHSWG) has been working in a coordinated effort to produce a protocol which will allow components of an Open Hypermedia System to talk to one another in a standardised manner. In this paper we reflect on this work and the knowledge that has come out of it, evaluating the different approaches to standardisation in the light of our experiences. We discuss the problems we encountered and redefine the goals of the effort to be more realistic, presenting the Fundamental Open Hypermedia Model (FOHM) as an example of this more realistic approach. Finally we describe a possible future path that encompasses the research interests of the OHSWG while still leading ultimately to interoperability.
