Profiling OGC web services against the Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF)


Related pages


This Twiki page will examine the scope for 'Grid-enabling' OGC web services by profiling against the Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF).

Background: OGC and SOAP

The OGC specifications predate a lot of the current Web Services stack, including the Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF) and SOAP. Some OGC members have undertaken experiments and developed a SOAP verion of the OGC web services. Whist the SOAP mechanism is more complex there are a great many software development toolkits that support sOAP. In addition, most of the emerging Web Services stack assumes that SOAP is used.

The focus of this background review of the state of OGC and SOAP has been on the OGC WMS and WFS standards (WCS has also received some attention but is not included in this discussion). A number of interoperability experiments have been conducted that cover these standards and their possible mapping to SOAP. There are also a number of change requests and other documents:
  • WMS SOAP Interopability Experiment (OGC Document 03-013)
  • OWS 2 & 3
  • OMF
  • Change Requests
    • 04-041 WFS-T Change Proposal for SOAP profile
    • 04-050 WMS Change Proposal for SOAP profile

Note: access to the OGC technical documents in some cases is restricted to OGC members only. As such they are not reproduced on the SEE Grid website. Where possible OGC document numbers are included for those readers who are members of OGC).
