OHRA: Towards an Open Hypermedia Reference Architecture and a Migration Path for Existing Systems

Stuart Goose, Andy Lewis, Hugh Davis


The open hypermedia research community recognised that to make progress on defining a protocol to enable third party applications to access open link services, it was necessary to first establish a reference architecture for open hypermedia systems upon which to base discussions. In this paper we argue that there is a need to extend yet further the scope of these requirements. We propose an overall architecture for the integration of existing open hypermedia systems in a distributed and collaborative model, and provide a clear evolution path towards achieving this goal.
