Technical implementation of the prototype

This chapter describes parts of the prototype implementation of the concept described in the previous chapter. The goal is to provide the technical background of the prototype applications build to demonstrate and test the solution concepts. This might provide valuable insight for other implementers.

After the introduction, the second section opens up with a discussion of programming and development tools used for implementation, this also includes a short discussion on web-based software development. The third section of this chapter deals with the Ontology development tool and the fourth with web services developed to test, demonstrate and disseminate the ideas presented in previous chapters. The conclusions close off the chapter.
