Dear Susie,

Unfortunately, I can not participate in the HCLS RDF telecon today since I
will travel to a one-week REWERSE meeting later.

But I would like to announce a new Rule Responder use case for Health Care
and Life Science. 


This use case develops a rule-based eScience inference infrastructure in the
domain of Health Care and Life Science, which will dynamically integrate, by
the use of rules and common query languages, existing Web-based scientific
services and data sources. Following the idea of Web Services and Grid
infrastructures this use case addresses the problem of rule-based
heterogeneous data integration from Web sources/services and service
composition. That is, it provides semantic-enriched rule-based inference
(e.g. to implement expert decision logic) and dynamic access to web-based
service, e.g. the EMBL-EBI patent database
(http://srs.ebi.ac.uk/srsbin/cgi-bin/wgetz?-page+query+-id+3BCib1WGHAl) W3C
HCLS knowledge base (http://sw.neurocommons.org/2007/kb.html), SWAN
(http://swan.mindinformatics.org/), GoPubMed (http://www.gopubmed.org/).
Web-based service and data sources can be easily integrated using the rich
query built-ins of Prova for SQL, SPARQL, RDF Triples, RDFS/OWL DL
reasoning, XPath/XQuery.

I would be happy to give a demo about it in one of the next HCLS RDF
telecons, e.g. on December, 10th; if possible combined with the promised
demo about goPubMed (http://www.gopubmed.org/).

The Rule Responder architecture consists of four essential parts:

1. RuleML / Reaction RuleML as common platform-independent (PIM layer) rule
/ message interchange format:


2. Prova as a rule-based message / process flow engine used to describe and
execute in a declarative rule-based way the flow of inbound/outbound
messages between rule inference endpoints (arbitrary rule engines /
inference services) 


3. The Rule Responder middleware with an integrated enterprise service bus
used as communication middleware to transport messages over 30 different
transport protocols (such as JMS, HTTP, SOAP) and as Web-based object-broker
to install distributed inference services (rule engines).


4. Arbitrary platform-specific rule engines (e.g. OO-jDrew, Prova etc.) (PSM
layer) deployed as inference services on the ESB to answer queries and
execute rules wrt to the local rule bases of the rule engines.
