Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
I've been working on the OSLC Core specification for about 1.5 years now as workgroup lead, and OSLC fits squarely under the "open web technologies" and Web Integration Patterns topics of this blog, so I'm blogging this happy news.
Here's the announcement From the OSLC Core Workgroup mailing list:
From: Dave Johnson To: oslc-core (a) open-services.net, community (a) open-services.net Subject: OSLC Core v2 specification now FINAL Today , I'm very happy to announce that the OSLC Core v2 specification is FINAL. The OSLC Core v2 specification  defines a set of REST and Linked Data-based patterns, resources and protocols for integration of application and product lifecycle resources (ALM and PLM). It's designed to be the foundation for all other OSLC domain specifications and there are now three final OSLC specifications that are based on the Core, those being the OSLC Change Management (CM) , OSLC Quality Management (QM)  and OSLC Requirements Management (RM)  specs. I'd like to thank all of the members of the OSLC Core Workgroup and community for their hard work, critical thinking and ability to work together in such a productive and pleasant way. Also, special thanks to those OSLC domain workgroups who rebased their work on the Core and development teams that provided excellent feedback along the way. Thanks, - Dave -- David M. Johnson OSLC Core Workgroup Lead IBM Rational Software  Move to final was proposed last week, along with a small set of changes which have since been applied to the specification.

I really do have another Web Integration Patterns post on the way shortly, so stay tuned.
