MIMOSA/OpenO&M RESTful Services Working Group

MIMOSA has formed a Joint Working Group to initiate the work to add RESTful Services (with a RESTful API) to the existing MIMOSA and OpenO&M specifications which are based on SOAP and XML Schema and used as the basis for the Open Industrial Interoperability Ecosystem (OIIE). Initial Investigations are evaluating the current Internet Draft specification for JSON Schema as an option to be considered as an alternative for XML Schema. Since unlike much of the internet community MIMOSA is very focused on enabling Standards Based Interoperability for complex Industrial Systems and Systems of Systems, we are also evaluating the continued use of our XML Schema, with a REST API as a logical path forward for the relatively complex events which are inherently necessary in the OIIE. Contact MIMOSA if you are interested in participating.
