FAST

Till Janner, Christoph Schroth & Volker Hoyer

abstract The main objective of the project is to create a new a visual programming environment that will facilitate the development of complex front-end gadgets, involving execution of relatively complex
business processes that rely on back-end semantic Web services. The approach adopted will be usercentric rather than program-centric: instead of first building programs that orchestrate available
semantic Web services and then try to figure out how to implement interaction with the users at given points of the process execution flow, programmers will start from the front-end gadgets that the user
will see and interact with, and then, afterwards, they will visually establish the connection to back-end Web services going through process execution flows if necessary. The way programmers will visually establish this connection will follow an approach similar to what sequence diagrams in UML look like.

The FAST project believes that this new user-oriented approach is feasible and that it will overpass limitations of current business process engines approaches. In this approach, programmers will
visually manage and connect front-end gadgets, screen-flow resources and back-end services.

It is worth pointing out that the programming tool to be developed will be conceived as a tool that can be compatible with existing and future Mashup platforms. Our goal is not to develop the gadget
Mashup platform but a tool that enables to develop Mashup-able gadgets which rely on screen-flow resources and semantic Web services stored in a catalogue.

German Abstract:

Das Projekt „Fast and Advanced Storyboard Tools“ (FAST) wird im März 2008 starten und 36 Monate von einem fokussierten, Europäischen Konsortium bearbeitet: Teléfónica Investigación y Desarrollo (Koordinator, TeleCom- Provider), SAP AG (Co-Lead, Schwerpunkt auf betriebswirtschaftliche Analysen und den Bau eines Prototyps), University of Ireland, Galway (Expertise insbesondere im Bereich des Semantic Web), University of Kassel (Schwerpunkt auf Szenario-basierten Modellierungsumgebungen), Cyntelix Corporation (Expertise im Bereich Semantisches Web und Kollaborations-plattformen) und Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Fokus auf Semantisches Web und Web 2.0).

Hauptziel des Forschungsprojektes ist die Entwicklung einer webbasierten Plattform, die das effiziente Erstellen so genannter Enterprise Mash-ups erlaubt: Firmen können informations-intensive Dienstleistungen zukünftig in unterschiedlicher Granularität publizieren und so für andere konsumierbar machen. Nutzer werden in die Lage versetzt, diese Dienste dann schnell zu finden und auf intuitive Weise mit anderen zu einer Gesamtapplikation zu kombinieren.
