Executive Summary

This document describes the Generic Enablers in the Data/Media and Context Management chapter, their basic functionality and their interactions. These Generic Enablers form the core business framework of the FIWARE platform by supporting the business functionality for commercializing services.

The functionality of the framework is illustrated with several abstract use case diagrams, which show how the individual GE can be used to construct a domain-specific application environment and system architecture.

Each GE Open Specification is first described at a generic level, elaborating on the functional and non-functional properties. Then it is supplemented by a number of specifications according to the interface protocols, API and data formats that are delivered in separate individual documents, one per GE.

This document has the available Open Specifications that have been created in FIWARE as a result of the work in Release 4 of the platform.

There is a major shift in the approach of the Open Specifications in FIWARE. Whereas in the initial Releases (from Release 1 to Release 3) the Open Specification APIs were published on the wiki, from Release 4 onwards the information will be created and published in a more modern and manageable format using auxiliary tools such as apiary and github.

This document is accompanied by a set of annexes contained in separate documents, each one providing the detailed Open Specification API of each GE.

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, behaviour and intended use of the GE
  • Terminology, definitions and abbreviations to clarify the meanings of the specification
  • Legal information with the terms of use
  • The Architecture document is generally included as is for the sake of completeness
  • 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.
