Subject: RE: Value Added Services?
I don't agree these are value added services, as was agreed in Tokyo. In order to accomplish the distribute registry requirement, we need something like pub sub. Second, ad hoc is critical and can be accomplished in a short time. We just need a canonical query language and the recommended syntax out of Tokyo was OQL. We agreed to keep our eyes on quilt (David Webber provided a good presentation in Tokyo) but at this time, there is no indication that db vendors will support it. We did put four services into this category (transformation, library control, workflow, and quality assurance). These are RA specified.

During the last few weeks, Farrukh has submitted proposals that I believe fall under the category of "Value Added Services." Pub/Sub and Ad Hoc query are two examples of this. Although these are both very interesting and crucial to true business usages, I believe that any Standards efforts with respect to these should be managed outside of the core efforts of the Registry and Repository Team. These value-added services could/should be layered on top of the Registry. Let's finish the core Registry functionality first and then add on. As an example, we still have the challenge of Distributed Registries to specify. Joel Munter Intel - eArchitecture Solutions Lab firstname.lastname@example.org (480) 552-3076
