About This Document

FIWARE GE Open Specifications describe the open specifications linked to Generic Enablers GEs of the FIWARE platform (and their corresponding components) being developed in one particular chapter.

GE Open Specifications contain relevant information for users of FIWARE to consume related GE implementations and/or to build compliant products which can work as alternative implementations of GEs developed in FIWARE. The later may even replace a GE implementation developed in FIWARE within a particular FIWARE instance. GE Open Specifications typically include, but not necessarily are limited to, information such as:

  • Description of the scope, behavior and intended use of the GE
  • Terminology, definitions and abbreviations to clarify the meanings of the specification
  • Signature and behavior of operations linked to APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that the GE should export. Signature may be specified in a particular language binding or through a RESTful interface.
  • Description of protocols that support interoperability with other GE or third party products
  • Description of non-functional features

Intended Audience

The document targets interested parties in architecture and API design, implementation and usage of FIWARE Generic Enablers from the FIWARE platform.
