Subject: RE: ebXML Registry and Repository Part 1: Business Domain Specificati onReleased for First Comment Period

1) Thank you for the observation, and yes, you are correct in that a
corporation could have their own registry and repository.  We are promoting
and requiring a network of registries and repositories as that is the only
architecture that will scale over the Internet.

I am still thinking in my mind about the specializations under RA, and
whether the RA may actually inherit from the Corporation instead, and that
there may be another way to show a corporation that is NOT an RA that
represents the business needs within a vertical domain (for example).  I do
not believe inheriting from the RA is the best since this is not necessarily
to show role based security, but inheritance of legal and policy issues.  It
would be nice to show optional cardinality on inheritance in Rose as that
would simplify things.

Speaking of the corporation's registry and repository, it does seem that the
corporation's registry may need to be registered somewhere, and that John
Petit's concept of a "registry of registries" becomes more important in that
context.  I don't think it is necessary to show that in the actor hierarchy


2) I posted the latest X3.285 mdl version I had on my computer to the ebXML
site.  Try this link to download:

Specificati onReleased for First Comment Period

Dear Scott,

1 - I have reviewed the document in reference and I would like to have a
clarification from you on the Section 2 Figure 2 about the
Actors relationship diagram and more specifically about the "Corporation"

According to the diagram, there is no way a Corporation could become a
Registration Authority (RA) whilst I thought (and Eric
confirmed it to me) that the ebXML Registry and Repository was to be a
distributed system with I guess local RA's. In that case, we
should assume that Corporation may have an RA role and therefore should
inherit from the RA actor in the diagram.

Am I correct or on the contrary should we understand that there is one
single central RA with distributed registries and
repositories or moreover with a central registry and repository ?

2 - Could you please send me a copy of the X.285 Specs if you have one (I
have not been able to get one from the various links on
the regrep sites). Thanks in advance.

Looking forward to your answer.
Best regards
