The GENSS project has developed a flexible generic brokerage framework based on the use of plug-in components that are themselves web services. The focus in GENSS has been on mathematical web services, but the broker itself is domain independent and it is the plug-ins that act as sources of domain-specific knowledge. A range of plug-ins has been developed that offer a variety of matching technologies including ontological reasoning, mathematical reasoning, reputation modelling, and textual analysis. The ranking mechanism too is a plug-in, thus we have a completely re-targettable matchmaking and brokerage shell plus a selection of useful packaged behaviours.
