Subject: Re: Interface Primitives Draft V021.
Klaus, Can I please have an official clarification from the Steering Committee on this. As you can see from my original posting - I was indeed clearly stating that my work is in alignment with and complimentary to the work being done by Farrukh, and offered 5 numbered items to this effect. The clarification I am formally seeking is I want it made clear if in fact only employees of Sun Microsystems and IBM (International Business Machines) Corp. are allowed to provide input to the Registry/Repository group as formal documents - or if other members are, from time to time, are allowed to submit <draft> documents detailing ideas and concepts that they feel should be considered in the context of the work Sun and IBM are doing? Also - is it acceptable for people who do not wish to use UML modelling tools to illustrate design concepts with alternate comparable methodologies? Once we have this clarification, then I feel I can better understand how one can interact within the Registry / Repository working group. Respectfully, DW. =================================================================== Message text written by Farrukh Najmi > David, I don't know what this document is and how it relates to RegRep. We do not want to create parallel universes in regrep. AFAIK I was assigned the task of defining the RR info model and registry services spec by Scott as an outcome of our last meeting. I am working very hard to do this. This sort of unsolicited activity creates FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) that is highly undesirable for us to make foreword progress. Please cease and desist. Scott, please weigh in as the team lead. I am very frustrated by this sort of out of band activity. This needs to stop. I will not have it any more. Look David. I thought we had a private conversation that we will work together and make this RR stuff work. What we need is to review the work that is already on the table. We do not need parallel documents that JUST CREATE FUD. I am so frustrated that I cannot even say a nice word about the hard work you have put into whatever the heck this document is. -- Regards, Farrukh David RR Webber wrote: > Attached PDF of V 0.21 > > Some issues and next steps. > > 1) Figure out alignment with Farrukh's classification doc - > this does not look too tough - both are in alignment is my > assessment - and as Scott noted previously the section > 2.3 to 2.5 fit. > > 2) More tough - design of classification structure samples - > this is an amalgumation of ebXML BP, ebXML CC and > GUIDE and OASIS/ISO11179 classifications. > > I'm basically seeing this will take us a month of hard work > to do - we can't rush this. > > 3) I've made a good start on the interface Query/Response. > We can use <extensions> to place SQL as triggers so > that we can meet Farrukhs requirement for SUM, COUNT > et al for SQL based Repository sources by simply putting > this code inline as labelled SQL - this is a nice > compromise between XML and SQL sources. > > 4) Change Request is significantly harder.
