Abstract

Disclosed is a design for a registry at various levels of an organization, for example at the Local Area Network (LAN), Domain, or corporate level, which makes public the presence of an Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC)-enabled application when it is deployed.

Create the ability to dynamically and automatically discover and configure a server with OSLC configurations

Data may be stored in a variety of places. Data is typically only meaningful in the context of the application which creates or maintains the data. Applications are created and operated independently and may not be known to other applications with which their records could be loosely coupled in some meaningful way. This is referred to as an Application Cloud.

Using Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC), application developers can enable their applications to be accessed by other OSLC applications which will provide the ability to create records in those other applications and maintain links between the two. This invention is a registry at various levels of an organization, for example at the Local Area Network (LAN), Domain, or corporate level, which makes public the presence of an OSLC-enabled application when it is deployed.

An OSLC Link to another record can be established in Application A when creating a record (and back-link) in Application B. This invention enhances the OSLC Link Type functionality to show two sets of OSLC links:

1. Those links already configured on the Application A web server (already displayed in OSLC enabled applications)

2. A collapsed list of OSLC Links at an arbitrary number of levels or application neighborhoods of any user defined type (this invention)

When a new application is OSLC-enabled and made active, the r...
