Abstract

This paper presents a domain and supplier independent generic architecture for the information brokerage, designed as a part of the EU ACTS R&D project GAIA (Generic Architecture for Information Availability). The GAIA Architecture provides a common framework for developers of the brokerage systems. This paper describes a Reference Model which defines actors involved in the information trading and actions that constitute the trading process. It introduces a modular Functional Architecture which covers the functionality of the brokerage system and allows to incorporate different existing technologies into the broker. It specifies a set of profiles which ensure an interoperability of the broker with other brokers, and with customers and suppliers. This architecture has been verified by the reference implementation of the GAIA brokerage system and by public trials in three different domains: music, technical data of computer components, and publishing. This architecture will be published as a GAIA Standard at the end of the GAIA project.
