Jack C. Wileden, Alan KaplanSoftware interoperability is fundamental to such topics as development based on components, reuse, and infrastructure for distributed or network-based systems. As a result, a variety of (often partial) approaches to interoperability have appeared, each offering a potential solution to interoperability problems. Yet what these approaches offer, how they compare, and exactly what problems they are solving is generally unclear. Some foundations for understanding and evaluating interoperability problems and proposed approaches for solving those problems.
Jack C. Wileden is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst whose research centers on tools and techniques supporting seamless integration of advanced capabilities into computing systems.
Alan Kaplan is on the faculty of the Department of Computer Science at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia. His research includes tools and techniques supporting software development, O-O databases, and interoperability.
