(But you can call us “OSLC” )
An open community building practical specifications for integrating software
We want software that easily integrates with other software, which will help you build your ideal development and operations environment, connect disjointed workflows, minimize frustration, and save time and money.
Development and operations tools should be able to work freely with similar products. With our standardized methods to represent, access, and link to resources, you won’t have to suffer with any more fragile, fussy integrations.
Software should be able to share and use linked data. With OSLC specifications, your tools can freely understand each others’ data and artifacts. That means you can better analyze, track, and explore that data to make better decisions.
Life is complicated enough: we write just enough specification to address the most common scenarios. We do not address uncommon use cases, nor do we create specifications for their own sake. But you're free to extend our specifications as needed.
Why reinvent the wheel? We base our specifications on ubiquitous and established Internet and linked-data standards. We design RESTful services, and any resource must be accessible to multiple tools via a URL.
