Markup and Component Interoperability for Active Rules

Oliver Fritzen, Wolfgang May, Franz Schenk


We present -on the base of previous papers- a framework for markup, interchange, execution, and interoperability of Active Rules, namely, Event-Condition-Action (ECA) Rules over semantically different sublanguages for expressing events, conditions, and actions. The contribution of the present paper is the extension of the MARS meta model of component languages to a meta model of services and an informational infrastructure that is required for a most general framework for specifying and executing active rules over heterogeneous languages. The approach is implemented in the MARS prototype.
