Outside-In: Application Interoperability Using an OSID-Based Framework

This post describes an interoperability demonstration given at OpeniWorld Europe 2008 in Lyon, France.


Segue and Concerto are two curricular applications built upon Harmoni, an Open Service Interface Definition-based (OSID) service-oriented application framework. This demonstration will show how website content created in Segue is stored as OSID Assets in Harmoni’s OSID Repository. Similarly, the demonstration will show how multimedia assets created in Concerto can be stored same repository. Interoperability will be demonstrated as each application is used to view and make real-time modifications to the OSID Assets created using the other application, while at the same time respecting the authorizations given to those assets. Additionally, an OSID Repository to OAI-PMH gateway will be shown providing the LibraryFind meta-search tool with access to the metadata for content created in Segue, Concerto, and a lightweight, read-only OSID Repository.
