An ECA Engine for Deploying Heterogeneous Component Languages in the Semantic Web

Erik Behrends, Oliver Fritzen, Wolfgang May, Daniel Schubert


We describe a generic ECA service for implementing behavior using heterogeneous sublanguages in the Semantic Web. The module details and implements our recent work on an ontology and language concept for a modular approach to ECA rules in the Semantic Web. The ECA level provides generic functionality independent from the actual languages and semantics of event detection, queries and tests, and actions. An XML communication format is used to integrate Web services implementing the component languages.
