Patterns for Federated Architecture

By: George Fernandez, Liping Zhao, Inji Wijegunaratne


An enterprise-federated architecture intends to mirror the structure of the organization, aiming to provide better support for both new and legacy applications within a distributed environment and facilitating data exchange between applications to support information integration. Under this architectural form, the organization's information systems are separated out into autonomous co-operating application clusters, each connected to a message-oriented federal highway acting as the vehicle for inter-domain communication.
