Content Assembly Mechanism (CAM)

The Content Assembly Mechanism (CAM) provides a generalized assembly mechanism using templates of business transaction content. These templates augment and enhance schema structure definitions with context driven business rules so that accurate information content can be produced consistently. The CAM approach also integrates with metadata semantics and particularly with registry storage of vocabularies of metadata. A compliant CAM processor is thereby able to provide documentation of information exchange formats, validation of transaction instances and runtime creation of valid transaction documents.

Web Services, Service-Oriented Architectures, and Cloud Computing: The Savvy Manager's Guide

by with David Dick

This is a guide for the savvy manager who wants to capitalize on the wave of change that is occurring with Web Services, service-oriented architecture, and—more recently—Cloud Computing. The changes wrought by these technologies will require both a basic grasp of the technologies and an effective way to deal with how these changes will affect the people who build and use the systems in our organizations. This book covers both issues. Managers at all levels of all organizations must be aware of both the changes that we are now seeing and ways to deal with issues created by those changes.
