Information about the candidate OASIS Standard and the OSLC OP

The OSLC initiative applies Linked Data principles, such as those defined in the W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP), to create a cohesive set of specifications that can enable products, services, and other distributed network resources to interoperate successfully.

Quality Management V2.1 defines the OSLC quality management domain, a RESTful web services interface for the management of product, service or software quality artifacts, activities, tasks and relationships between those and related resources such as requirements, defects, change requests or architectural resources. To support these scenarios, this specification defines a set of HTTP-based RESTful interfaces in terms of HTTP methods: GET, POST, PUT and DELETE, HTTP response codes, content type handling and resource formats.

The OP received 3 Statements of Use from IBM, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and SodiusWillert.[6].
