XMarks Design Pattern

This diagram depicts a kind of design pattern for data integration via web services, for example between an assessment tool and a student records system.

 

It's a symmetrical design, where at each end there is:

 

a) a data store

b) a data access layer composed of a generic interface and the underlying implementation of that interface

c) a web services layer
