Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the standard OSLC, for sharing resources, as a standardized integration platform. The previously most common way of integrating tools has been to implement a middleware which translates communication between different tools written in different programming languages. OSLC uses common concepts found on the web to form a language independent platform with no logic attached to its structure. Instead of logic OSLC relies on a metadata structure, enabling communication across different languages and platforms. A practical implementation between a debug analyzer (Optima OSE) and a test-harness (Farkle) was implemented to show some of the core OSLC functionality. The results show that integration is indeed possible. The analysis of the implementation showed that even though simple in the sense of concepts and standards used OSLC is far from mature enough for widespread adoption, mostly due to a somewhat overworked specification.
