|The industrial solution to interoperation in heterogeneous information
resource environment (HIRE) is based on the idea of total encapsulation
of the underlying resources. No semantics of resource could be supported
on the generalized model level. At the same time convenient,industrially
supported way to get access to heterogeneousservices will be provided.
From the other side, such hard topics as semantic interoperability and
legacy systems require more comprehensive solutions that need careful study
and proper theoretical and architectural decisions. To cope with these
requirements in the SYNTHESIS project a number of features is provided
for reasoning that certain collection of information resources is applicable
to a particular problem and is consistently composable for interoperable
work. Basic features of the SYNTHESIS methodology for the interoperable
information system design are presented.
An architectural provisions for the integration of CORBA-embedded objects
into the SYNTHESIS HIRE are proposed. The resulting complementary architecture
makes possible to reach semantic interoperation of CORBA-embedded information
resources. The paper shows how to enrich description of such information
resources to apply the SYNTHESIS information system design methodology
(providing for semantic reuse of pre-existing information resources) to
ORB accessible resources.
