|Fundamental issues of the semantic interoperability reasoning (SIR)
constitute a basis of semantic interoperation. Such issues include: reaching
of the coherence of the ontological contexts of the heterogeneous information
resources (services) and of the application; searching for resources and
their components that could serve as the concretizations of the application
specification of requirements; creation of the composition of resources
(or their components) that could serve as a consistent, coherent concretization
of the application; justifying (proving) that constructed specification
is truly a concretization of the application requirements.
Industrial efforts (such as the OMG architecture) are addressing the
core (technical) level of interoperation based on the idea of total encapsulation
of the underlying resources. Such architectures do not care of SIR and
have no provisions for SIR support. They can be treated as nothing-for-SIR
architectures: all SIR - required analysis, decisions and tests during
the interoperable system design should be provided beyond them. The notion
of SIR-complete architecture is introduced. Basic propositions (specificational,
methodological, architectural) that constitute the requirements for SIR-complete
framework (SIRF) are presented.
To add flexibility, SIRF is extended with cooperative abilities based
on the notion of Active Information Resources competing for participation
in the information system developments. Additional organizational capability
for SIRF is also predicted that leads to mediator-based organization of
the past experience reflected in the information resources specially organized
for future reuse.
