Web Services Working Group Product-Oriented Working Group Support Request and Statement of Work Summary Statement The Web Services Working Group (WSWG) was established at the 2009 IMC meeting in response to a recognized need for guidelines in implementing a web service-oriented architecture in the LTER Network Information System. The WSWG has also been tasked by LNO and IMExec with exploring possible redevelopment paths for network resources, including the personnel, all-site bibliography, and site description databases. In order to meet both of these needs, the WSWG proposes that it be funded as a product-oriented working group to design and develop an updated, web service-enabled version of the LNO personnel database.
