Subject: Re: New Tech Arch Document

THanks Chris:

THe new document,  while being a ways from being considered finished, 
does move generally towards this direction.   

THe first section "Architectural OVerview" describes the object
relations between each component of the system and offeres a simple run
time view of the system.  IT shows how each of the components are
related to each other in a rudementary way.  It also starts to define
who is responsible for the interface designs.

The subsequent sections on Trading Partner Profile Functionality,
Business Process Modelling Functional Requirements, Core Components..
Functional Requirements all try to limit their scope to a brief outline
then a section which details the functional requirements for each and
tells the reader what interfaces they must support.

THe Reg Rep section is stil very large but it was our intent to show
that there could be more than one way to implement the REG REp section. 
TO accomplish this,  we started to define the functional requirements
for the Registry/Repsoitory component.

We do not intend to get into the design of each component.  There are
"examples" of what certain documents could look like to demonstrate the
functionality however, we clearly state that the onus is on the teams to
develop a system which will offer the facilities that msut be supported.

Please correct me if I am wrong.  It is very possible that somewhere
within this document, this does remain and it should be corrected.

We would also invite specific comments on each section to deal with
this.  As I stated during my presentation in San Jose,  we wanted to
make the functional requirements for each component known and show the
view of how they relate to each other.  THe run time scenario is not as
important but it aided in the development.

Are you available to take on one section of the TA Specification?  If we
could lure you into a commitment like this, it would speed things up

Thanks Chris
