One of the projects of the Event Processing Technical Society (EPTS) is the publication of an Event Processing Glossary. The second version of this glossary was just posted for public review at David Luckham’s Complex Event Processing site. From the document:
The purpose of the EPTS glossary of terms is to facilitate industry use of event processing technology by providing a common language for developing applications and software infrastructure that use event processing concepts.
The event processing glossary has three goals:
- Accelerate the learning of the event processing concept
- Further community communication by enabling practitioners to utilize common concepts and terms
- Provide a foundation for analysis and the development of best practices, publications, and industry standards
As a participant in the working group calls, I must commend Professor Luckham and Roy Schulte for their squirrel herding ability.
