FAA - HDBK-008
Using FAA Standards to Describe and Register Web Services
|Publication Date:||4 February 2001|
This Handbook provides a set of guidelines and recommendations for collecting and presenting the minimum required set of metadata needed for describing and registering FAA Web services that has already been set forth in FAA Standards 063, 064, 065, and 066. This Handbook gives users a process-oriented view on how and when to develop the metadata and register it in FAA-affiliated service registries and the FAA Data Registry (FDR). Service providers should use the Handbook in conjunction with the standards to help ensure that their service descriptions meet FAA's requirements by being complete, well and consistently written, and properly registered.
This Handbook does not explain or describe how to design a Web service or Web service registry, nor does it specify or suggest any technological solutions for implementing a Web service or Web service registry.
This Handbook does not suggest or endorse any specific configuration management and governance policies. Such policies and guidance are expected to be provided by the program offices responsible for implementing service-oriented architectures (SOA). Individual program offices may wish to extend this Handbook to accommodate their specific policies.
This Handbook is for guidance only and cannot be cited as a requirement.
