#OSLC Change Management V3.0 Committee Specification 01 approved and published

OASIS is pleased to announce that OSLC Change Management Version 3.0 from the OASIS OSLC Lifecycle Integration Domains TC [1] 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.

OSLC Change Management Version 3.0 defines a RESTful web services interface for managing product change requests, activities, tasks and relationships as well as related resources such as requirements, test cases, or architectural resources.

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