This section is non-normative.
This specification defines vocabulary terms for OSLC Architecture Management resources. The intent is to define resources needed to support common integration scenarios and not to provide a comprehensive definition of an architecture resource. The resource formats are intended to define a high-level resource that can be specialized by enterprise architecture, analysis or design artifacts. The approach to supporting these scenarios is to delegate operations, as driven by service provider contributed user interfaces, as much as possible and not require a service provider to expose its complete data model and application logic.
This section is non-normative.
Terminology is based on OSLC Core Overview [OSLCCore3], W3C Linked Data Platform [LDP], W3C's Architecture of the World Wide Web [WEBARCH], Hyper-text Transfer Protocol [HTTP11]. Terminology for this specification is defined in part 1 of the multi-part specification.
As well as sections marked as non-normative, all authoring guidelines, diagrams, examples, and notes in this specification are non-normative. Everything else in this specification is normative.
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this specification are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all capitals, as shown here.
In addition to the namespace URIs and namespace prefixes
foaf defined in the
OSLC Core specification, OSLC AM defines the namespace URI of
http://open-services.net/ns/am# with a namespace prefix
This specification also uses these namespace prefix definitions:
Property value types that are not defined in the following sections, are defined in [OSLCCore3].
Service implementations and clients MUST be prepared to accept any form of valid RDF/XML. For example the following two resource forms are equivalent. [CC-3]
<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:oslc="http://open-services.net/ns/core#" xmlns:oslc_am="http://open-services.net/ns/am#" xmlns:dcterms="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"> <oslc_am:Resource rdf:about="https://example.com/resources/res1"> <dcterms:title>Service Interface</dcterms:title> <dcterms:identifier>res1</dcterms:identifier> <oslc:serviceProvider rdf:resource="http://open-services.net/ns/am#"/> </oslc_am:Resource> </rdf:RDF> is equivalent to <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:oslc="http://open-services.net/ns/core#" xmlns:dcterms="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"> <rdf:Description rdf:about="https://example.com/resources/res1"> <dcterms:title>Service Interface</dcterms:title> <dcterms:identifier>res1</dcterms:identifier> <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://open-services.net/ns/am#Resource" /> <oslc:serviceProvider rdf:resource="http://open-services.net/ns/am#"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
This specification defines a number of specific, commonly occurring vocabulary terms (OWL classes), properties and values. Servers may define additional classes and provide additional properties as needed.
The namespace URI for this vocabulary is:
All vocabulary URIs defined in the OSLC Architecture Management (AM) namespace.
ArchitectureResource is an RDFS class.
A generic architecture resource. A resource of this type is likely to be a model or design artifact.
LinkType is an RDFS class.
A locally managed resource that describes a link type predicate that might otherwise not be directly resolvable.
Architecture Management servers MUST use the vocabulary terms defined here where required, and with the meanings defined here.
Architecture Management servers MAY augment this vocabulary with additional classes, properties, and individuals.
|CC-1||There are two OSLC AM defined resources: Resource and LinkType. OSLC AM defines a least common set of properties for resources, however service implementations are free to extend this set of properties. Clients MUST preserve properties it does not recognize when updating resources. AM Servers MAY ignore properties that it does not recognize. Additional properties may come from existing vocabularies (ie. Dublin Core, OWL). When additional properties do not come from a known vocabulary, it is recommended that they exist in their own unique namespace, and providers SHOULD NOT reuse namespaces defined in these specifications.|
All RDF/XML resources that include links with annotations MUST begin with an outer
|CC-3||Service implementations and clients MUST be prepared to accept any form of valid RDF/XML. For example the following two resource forms are equivalent.|
