As separate domain activities evolve, patterns emerge to solve some integrations challenges. These patterns need to be identified and potentially promoted to a more general purpose specification that applies to most domains. The table below will identify these patterns in existing specifications today and look for candidates to emerge into cross-domain specifications. These specifications can then be adopted directly within various domains, either directly or by providing extensions.

Integration Patterns

Domain leads will update this table by adding new patterns (rows) and by indicating what patterns they are currently leveraging. As new specifications are being developed, please make sure to update this table.
