Emergancy Information Services Interface (EISI) Implemented with Web Services
|Publication Date:||1 January 2008|
This document defines the Emergency Information Services Interface (EISI) member of the ESIF Emergency Services Network Interfaces family of specifications.
To achieve interoperability within an ESNet, EISI entities need to conform to a common set of rules of behavior. The EISI Feature concept is used to establish such rules of behavior for service agnostic ESNet functions - like those for managing service registration and lookup.
The functionality inherent in an EISI Feature is defined through functional decomposition as a set of abstract interfaces called EISI Functional Interfaces. Such functional decompositions benefit, for example, the expression of differing conformance requirements for the two types of EISI entities: service providers and service consumers.
This specification defines the framework for EISI services. This framework includes core features, functional interfaces, and conformance profiles. Core features are those that may be used to build EISI services. EISI services are defined in service specific documents that "conform" to the requirements in this specification. EISI services may use one or more of the core features to implement their service.
