Abstract

As new systems come on line, and data models change, we need to have the ability to update applications, user interfaces, agents and other services about these changes. It is also important that the updates be performed in a timely manner within the constructs of today s military server oriented architectures (enterprise services). Potomac Fusion, Inc proposes to provide an event-driven data model based on the JC3IEDM to allow applications, user interfaces and agents the ability to dynamically extend the data model without adversely affecting any dependent applications. The ability to do this is becoming more critical in today s military systems where the threat and maneuver operations and entities are constantly evolving. Our proposed solution extends our existing schema mapping capability to enable dynamically adding new object types and instances within the object model, allowing other applications, services and agents the ability to discover and use that new information. The focus of this effort is to provide enterprise processes that are capable of dynamically adjusting the data model, work flow and underlying data structures to dynamically adjust the user interface display, control and tasks based on the changes.
