The problems associated with defining interoperable protocols
for heterogenous information systems has been the subject of researchers for many years. While numerous solutions have been offered, the problem remains unsolved, mainly due to the distinctive nature of each target environment, and the uniqueness of each solution. This is not helped by the use of proprietary common data models or the use of non-open
or non-standard technologies to provide an infrastructure and services. In this research, services and processors were defined and implemented using a platform of existing standards, in order to provide a more open platform for system integration, and to enhance forward interoperability with new systems over time.
