Specification of high-level application programming interfaces (SemSorGrid4Env)

Page, Kevin R., De Roure, David C., Martinez, Kirk and Sadler, Jason (2009) Specification of high-level application programming interfaces (SemSorGrid4Env) s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This document defines an Application Tier for the SemsorGrid4Env project. Within the Application Tier we distinguish between Web Applications - which provide a User Interface atop a more traditional Service Oriented Architecture - and Mashups which are driven by a REST API and a Resource Oriented Architecture. A pragmatic boundary is set to enable initial development of Web Applications and Mashups; as the project progresses an evaluation and comparison of the two paradigms may lead to a reassessment of where each can be applied within the project, with the experience gained providing a basis for general guidelines and best practice. Both Web Applications and Mashups are designed and delivered through an iterative user-centric process; requirements generated by the project case studies are a key element of this approach.
