In this work we present an architectural overview over a knowledge-based middleware based on Topic Maps. In that, we exploit the TM paradigm as much as possible trying to solve typical middleware-specific tasks. Hereby we use the concept of virtualization to homogenize the data landscape, the TM query language for semantic transformations and a dedicated, RESTful protocol for TM fragment interchange.

I like the easy but powerful way of merging Topic Maps to extend and combine existing knowledge bases. Thus I see high potential in distributed environments where peer to peer solutions may open the gates to the real Web 3.0.
