Subject: RE: JSR-000093: JAXR - your opinions?
Furthermore, I would like to say that say that this is a great effort and we fully support it. This effort promises to bridge the gap between registry technologies and will allow clients to use registry technologies in a consistent manner. I would encourage everyone to fully support this effort and make it successful.

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.

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 http://java.sun.com/aboutJava/communityprocess/jsr/jsr_093_jaxr.html 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.
