You should start reading the Overall FI-WARE Vision.
It will give you an overview of some basic concepts and principles that are general to FI-WARE (Generic Enablers, FI-WARE Instance, etc).
The Reference Architecture of the FI-WARE platform is structured along a number of technical chapters, namely:
- Cloud Hosting
- Data/Context Management
- Internet of Things (IoT) Services Enablement
- Applications/Services Ecosystem and Delivery Framework
- Interface to Networks and Devices (I2ND)
You can get a description of each of these chapters by clicking on the chapter name in the list above. Each chapter description is structured so that a general overview of the chapter is provided first, where main Generic Enablers in the chapter are identified and briefly described. Afterwards, a more detailed description of each of these Generic Enablers is provided. A precise list of terms and definition is provided for each chapter that can work as basic vocabulary that will help to establish the basis for fruitful discussions around FI-WARE. A list of references is also provided that could be helpful to complement what has been described. Finally, a description of points still under discussion is included. It will transparently present some topics that are currently being targeted as part of ongoing discussions within the project.
