Subject: Re: JSR-000093: JAXR - your opinions?
<Bob Sutor> although possibly with less inside knowledge of ambiguity resolution that is in the heads of the implementors. </Bob Sutor> That lack of inside knowledge should help in providing the feedback to spec creators so spec could be refined and made less ambiguous. <Bob Sutor> ebXML will have to deal with 4) and 5) eventually. </Bob Sutor> Section 10 of TA spec talks about ebXML Conformance and Conformance testing. <Bob Sutor> In the same way, language-specific bindings can be done by the spec implementors or by another organization. </Bob Sutor> And by both (many) together? <Bob Sutor> Perhaps the spec implementors can do a better job at the bindings, if they have the resources available. This also makes the general standards/binding development process more scalable than always doing in one organization associated with the language. </Bob Sutor> I can see your point. If the binding is 1 to 1 then it might make sense. In fact, it looks like that (so many times mentioned) ODMG (OQL) group did exactly that. However, if you want to do Many to 1 then you probably cannot stay with only 1 spec creator. There was recently a post to this listserv http://lists.ebxml.org/archives/ebxml-regrep/200101/msg00127.html that refers to "OneBasketPattern". I hoped that ebXML is all about "OneBasketPattern", but have realized that some patterns could be implemented in "AntiPattern" fashion as well. Regards, Nikola
