This is the sixth in my series of Web Integration Patterns. Check out the intro at this URL http://rollerweblogger.org/roller/entry/web_integration_patterns
This pattern is about integrating web sites and applications by using standard feed formats to convey timely information, updates, status messages, events and other things from one web application to another.
Worth a read and related to my Web Integration Patterns post on Embedded Properties in HTML:
HTML5 Microdata and Schema.org:HTML5 Microdata and Schema.org On June 2, 2011, Bing, Google, and Yahoo! announced the joint effort Schema.org. When the big search engines talk, Web site authors listen. This article is an introduction to Microdata and Schema.org. The first section describes what HTML5, Microdata and Schema.org are, and the problems they have been designed to solve. With this foundation in place section 2 provides a practical tutorial of how to use Microdata and Schema.org using a real life example from the cultural heritage sector. Along the way some tools for implementers will also be introduced. Issues with applying these technologies to cultural heritage materials will crop up along with opportunities to improve the situation.

Enhance links shown in HTML pages so that users can hover, mouse-over, or use some other gesture, to view a preview of the resource at the other end of the link.
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.

In my previous post, I promised to write a blog series on Web Integration Patterns. This post explains the concept and a bit about how I plan to write about it.
Ive been meaning to write on this topic for a some time and to explain how Ive gone from being an advocate of RSS/Atom feeds, Atom Publishing Protocol and things bloggy to being a proponent of Linked Data (video), Semantic Web, RDF and other things that I previously considered to be nuisances. I've also got a new topic and blog series to announce, so here goes.[Read More]
