A Semantic Metadata Catalog Service for Grid

By Kewei Wei, Ming Zhang and Yaping Zhu


Abstract. Metadata is the information that describes the most important feature of an object. In recent years, metadata plays a more and more important role in data intensive applications. In this paper, we propose a semantic metadata catalog service, Semantic MCS. Semantic MCS has a well-organized data management model and supports the query mechanism using Ontology inference. Furthermore, we discuss the main problems that we met in real Grid applications. We propose a framework of metadata interoperation to resolve the problem of the services interoperability. And we propose a dynamic framework for metadata management for the rapid changing metadata in Grid.
