Subject: RE: Registry Submissions and Queries

Title: RE: Registry Submissions and Queries

Just my 2 cents.  Since I haven't been much of a contributor, and haven't followed as closely as I'd like, I do want to say that I think from what I have seen so far, that you guys are on the right track with this. 

EDI seems like some ancient technology, but provides a fairly solid architecture as far as the batch world is concerned.  However, using XML coupled with an HTTP transport mechanism seems like a great idea.  My concern has been that EDI-ers in the group would re-invent ebXML in the image of traditional EDI and ignore the capabilities that have come along in the last several years. 

Keep up the good work.

Agreed, some type of XML-RPC approach is not the way to go.

The XML -RPC is not really a type of query.  It is the mechanism for
delivering a query and subsequently, receiving a reponse.

The query mechanism is essentially the most important part of the query.
Several daemons can be run to accept queries on a registry  (server)
application.  Delivering a query in XML syntax via HTTP as the transport
protocol is a very good way of assuring that you have a 100% O/S and
Platform neutral method for querying a Registry/Repository.  Other good
methods also exist.  XQI (Xml Query Interface), a method employed by the
GoXML.com XML Search engine is merely a dedicated port on a server that
listens for incoming XML-syntax queries.

You could just as easily run a CGI script to accept HTML form input, a COM
object or any other combo of mechanisms.

Just my $0.02 worth.
