Subject: RE: Proposal: A Registry Browser GUI tool

Farrukh, Everyone,

I have been working a lot on XML Global's registry and repository effort,
and as such have been investigating adopted standards that are already
floating around to integrate with our own core technologies with an end goal
of providing a complete registry interface.

My main focus has been DASL (DAV Searching and Locating Protocol), but I
have also dived into the WebDAV spec.  WebDAV has been implemented by
Microsoft and included by default in their operating systems since Win98
OSR2 (or earlier).  Using "WebFolders", you can cut, copy, paste, delete,
mkdir, put and find properties on files from a familiar Windows Explorer
window. If a registry can "virtualize" its content and expose it via this
protocol, you have a GUI browser right there.  There are also open source
Java DAV Browsers available for download if you look for them.

Something to think about, perhaps.

Subject: Proposal: A Registry Browser GUI tool

Maybe this is already covered by one of our many excellent POC
suggestions but....

This idea came about in a converstaion with Chris Ferris recently and I
then bounced it off Krishna.

We should consider adding a functionality to Phillipes POC functionality
matrix for a Registry Browser GUI tool.

(As an aside we should have line items for other GUIs as well such as
buyer GUI, seller GUI, Message Monitor GUI etc.)

The Registry Browser GUI tool would be a client of the Registry Services
and would allow a human user to use a browsing
oriented navigation to sift through the Parties registered and find the
Parities that match their needs. The tool would make use
of RegRep object classification support ((not yet speced but soon will
be)) to drill down to the interesting Parties. They could then
get the associated Party Profile Object Association support (not yet
speced but soon will be) in Registry Services.

A second GUI (potentially in the same GUI application), a TPA Assembler
tool, could then be used to assemble the TPA between the Party
represented by the tool user and the Party selected by the user.

Once a TPA is established the parties could conduct the rest of the demo
based on ebXML TRP messaging.

I realize that the "(not yet speced but soon will be)" aspects are
risky, but we are working very hard in RegRep to make it happen by Sep
21st. We are working closely with other WGs that are defining
meta-models for their specific areas on the classification support.

I have run this idea by Krishna since he had good insights and interest
in the discovery area. Note that this scenario shows discovery based on
up and coming ebXML specs (not eCo and not UDDI). Krishna was supportive
of the thoughts at a high level and had some additional ideas. I think
we should start some dialog on this subject to get the teams input.

Thanks for your thoughts and comments.
