Overview

Below is a high level overview of the plug and manage scenario. This scenario ties together WSDM enablement of resources with the SML work.

Description of Steps

Step 1: The scenario starts with a WSDM enabled resource "starting up". When this occurs, the endpoint emits an advertisement. This is a WS-Notification on a specific topic. The WSDM endpoint for the SML repository is subscribed to this topic and receives the notification.

Step 2: The WSDM endpoint for the SML repository uses WS-Metadata Exchange to collect more information about the WSDM endpoint for the managed resource.

Step 3: The SML Repository is updated with the information about the new resource.

Step 4: A WS-Notification is placed on a topic. This topic indicates that a new resource is available. The WSDM endpoint for the Data Collection Assembly is subscribed to this topic and receives the notification.

Step 5: The Data Collection Assembly begins collecting data, e.g. via WSDM, from the resource.
