FUSION Technical Architecture
The Semantic Services Analyzer is a graphical environment that facilitates the semantic conceptualization
of Service-Oriented Business Applications regardless their technical infrastructure. The Semantic Services
Analyzer enables the utilization of the produced business conceptualization for the automatic creation of
The graphical environment enables system analysts to associate the theoretical concepts to the business
application resources providing a connection between the system semantics and their technical realization.
The Integration Mechanism is the component of the FUSION Solution responsible for the administration
of the Semantic Repository (containing the Concept Models and Services Repository, the Web Services
Software Instances Repository and the Semantic-enriched Service Registry), for the creation,
administration and the maintenance of the Web Services and the publication of Web Services in the
semantic-enriched UDDI Registry.
The Integration Mechanism does not offer any graphical interface but it communicates via SOAP with the
Semantic Services Analyzer. This enables the remote creation and deployment of Web Services Software
Instances by a group of users, potentially from multiple legal entities, that have the proper rights to
connect to the Integration Mechanism, and the administration of the Mechanism by authenticated
personnel (e.g., in case of inter-organizational EAI, the authenticated personnel comes from the “core
partner” of the inter-organizational supply chain that potentially owns the FUSION System).
