Data Services World : Mark Hapner's WADL, URIs as Database Types, Tricks of the Architect's Trade Session
Mark Hapner's Session at DataServices World, June 24, in New York City

URIs are the lingua franca of the web. They are in every web page and every HTTP request. In a practical sense, they represent the realization of the web. Without them, the web would cease to exist. The situation is very different in the world of the RDBMS. Here, URIs are interlopers. Some RDBMS have provided basic support for URIs via their object extension facilities; however, URIs are still not considered a formal part of RDBMS schema design. This talk explores how URI could evolve to become as important to RDBMS Schemas as it is to the web.

One aspect of URI 'types' this presentation will cover is the use of Web Application Description Language (WADL). WADL has been described as SQL Schema meets REST. WADL is metadata describes the functional and structural aspects of a URI 'type' that a web site or other provider offers through HTTP.

SOAWorld Conference & Expo 2008 East
June 23-24, 2008 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City
SOA World Conference & Expo 2008 East brings together the best minds in the business for a two-day conference that offers comprehensive coverage of SOA and what it means to enterprise IT today.

Service-oriented architectures have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled Web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions.

Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions. This explosive growth in SOA technology is in response to a global demand--IDC estimates that spending on SOA services alone will grow from $8.6 billion to more than $33 billion by 2010.
