Subject: RE: Centralized Registry Discovery Mechanism
Message text written by "Petit, John" > Scott, Is this progressing? I have not seen any discussion about centralized registry discovery on this or the other boards. I would be happy to help this effort if needed. Has the idea of a registry CPP been broached to the TP group? <<<<<<<< John, The last I recall on this was that we had said the RegRep spec' would specify a sub-directory off the local Registry server for the CPP XML doc' to be saved in to bootstrap that local registry. i.e. http://myregistry.companyx.com/ebXMLregistry/ and the default doc is ebXMLcpp.xml Then I recall someone saying we needed some sample CPP's. I guess though - pending Len's DTD - and the TRP changes afoot - which we now have, it was difficult to complete the CPP sampler. So maybe now we can do that - or John you can do a first pass at that for us? (nb: Farrukh did a early one of these for Tokyo that can be followed to do a newer one). Once we have that done - its simple for the various HTML and XML search engines to find those CPP's and expose them for people / and or to expose them via peoples own CPP and websites. I'm not sure we need a distributed list of this - but in anycase XML.org is set to do at least the list of locations of the CPP's for us. I'd rather not go down a complex and difficult path - when a simple approach based on existing ebXML spec's will get us a workable version 1.0 solution. DW.
