OSLC Architecture Management v2.1 from OSLC Domains TC approved as a Committee Specification

OASIS is pleased to announce that OSLC Architecture Management Version 2.1 from the OASIS OSLC Lifecycle Integration Domains TC has been approved as an OASIS Committee Specification.

For anyone developing complex systems and software, managing change and configurations throughout the development lifecycle can be difficult. This is especially true in heterogeneous environments that include homegrown tools, open source projects, and commercial tools from different vendors. Organizations that need to design, develop, deliver, and evolve a portfolio of products can benefit from an open technical architecture that is minimalist, loosely coupled, and standardized.

The OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) 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.

The Architecture Management specification defines the OSLC Architecture Management domain, 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, this 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.

This Committee Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
