OSLC Specifications collectively define a core set of services and vocabularies for lifecycle management. Architecture Management provides a means of defining the things whose lifecycles are being managed. General information about this public review can be found in

OASIS and the OSLC Open Project [1] are pleased to announce that OSLC Architecture Management Version 3.0 is now available for public review and comment.

The OSLC Specifications collectively define a core set of services and domain vocabularies for lifecycle management including requirement, change and quality management.

OSLC Architecture Management defines a RESTful web services interface for the management of architectural resources and relationships between those and related resources such as product change requests, activities, tasks, requirements or test cases. To support these scenarios, the specification defines a set of HTTP-based RESTful interfaces in terms of HTTP methods: GET, POST, PUT and DELETE, as well as HTTP response codes, content type handling and resource formats.

The specification is part of a broader set of OSLC specifications that are part of the OSLC-OP project. In particular, OSLC-Core ( provides the core services upon which the Architecture Management specification is built.

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