Architecture

Introduction

Most of the STAR Work Groups (WG) are chartered with developing or maintaining the existing data formats (BODs), but the Architecture WG is chartered with finding common infrastructure and interoperability among STAR members. STAR has created this group to address certain areas of Web Architecture that include Transport as well as:

  • Interpret and clarify complex issues
  • Build consensus around principles
  • Coordinate technology developments

The current Transport Package specification is set of publications for RSP and OEM software developers and architects to foster interoperable movement of STAR XML BODs. The documents in the package are:

  • STAR Transport Guidelines a high level requirements and recommendations document
  • STAR Web Services Implementation implementation details for using Web services specifications
  • STAR ebMS Implementation Guidelines implementation details for using the ebXML Message Services specification
