Subject: RE: JSR-000093: JAXR - your opinions?

I would like to pint out an important point that should here that should not
be overlooked.  While certainly there is a great participation from the
ebXML community in JAXR, JAXR is aspiring to be more neutral to the
underlying registry model.  The following paragraph from the JSR describes
its intent:

"This JSR requests the creation of the Java API for XML Registries 1.0
specification (JAXR). JAXR may be viewed as analogous to Java Naming and
Directory Interface (JNDI) but designed specifically for internet sharing of
XML-related business information."

Just like JNDI provides a consistent interface to various underlying  naming
and directory services, I would think that JAXR will also try provide
consistent client interfaces to other registries (such as UDDI).  

So the correct way of looking at the relationship between JAXR and ebXML
RegRep is that the reference implementation of JAXR may include an
implementation of ebXML RegRep but then again it also may include a
reference impolementation of UDDI.  We will have to see how well this can be
achieved but this is/should be an important design goal of JAXR.

Subject: JSR-000093: JAXR - your opinions?

I would be interested in hearing the opinions of this group regarding the
proposed JSR-000093 Java(TM) API for XML Registries 1.0 (JAXR) at


particularly because it includes as contributions ebXML Registry Information
Model Specification and the ebXML Registry Services Specification. In
particular, it raises again the issue of specific language bidings for
XML-related specifications and who should do them (reminds me of the DOM),
and how to deal with such bindings when the primary means of accessing an
application is via XML messaging.
