The concept of an Integrated Clinical Environment can be implemented by a fully connected operation room containing devices from different manufacturers. An exchange architecture and protocol for this kind of environment is defined by the IEEE 11073 Service-oriented Device Connectivity family of standards. Therein, a Domain Information and Service Model is bound to the Medical Devices Communication Profile for Web Services, which is the specification for the information exchange technology. It is employed as the communication layer in the software library SDCLib/J that implements an Integrated Clinical Environment. In order to demonstrate that the functionality of SDCLib/J is independent of the underlying transport technology, its communication layer was replaced with an implementation of the Data Distribution Service. Therefore, its publish-subscribe pattern needed to be redesigned and transformed so that it matches the library’s request-response principle.
