Supporting the Evolution of Federated Systems in Web Engineering
Defence of Dissertation, Chemnitz, Germany, 20. May 2009
A central advantage of the Web over traditional application plattforms lies in its great potential for supporting tasks beyond organizational boundaries. Presently, a trend towards a new class of federated Web applications can be observed that exploit this potential to a high degree. The development of such applications is particularly challenged by the need for controlling accesses of users whose identities are managed by partner organizations. This work extends the state of the art in the area of Web Engineering with tools, models, methods and processes for supporting the evolution of federated systems. It comprises a catalogue of design building blocks for federated infrastructures, a modeling language for planning federated architectures as well as a method for integrating information spaces of applications that are subject to federated access control.
