Abstract:A sizable amount of data on the Web is currently available via Web APIs that expose data in formats such as JSON or XML. Combining data from different APIs and data sources requires glue code which is typically not shared and hence not reused. We derive requirements for a mechanism that brings data and functionality currently available via ad-hoc APIs into a coherent framework. Such standardised access to content and functionality would reduce the effort for data integration and the combination of service functionality, leading to reduced effort in composing data and services from multiple providers.
