Subject: Re: External ID draft
Message text written by Farrukh Najmi > David, We had decided that we will not focus on the concept of the repository since all access is via the registry. However, we still are defining a Registry that must somehow support a repository. The repository will contain actual content. The registry will store certain things that either directly or indirectly catalog content in the repository. This fundemental assumption has not changed as long as I can recall. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Farrukh, I'm sorry but this statement makes no logical sense whatsoever. There is a reopistory but it does not exist because you access everything thru the registry. Therefore if you put CCmps in the Repository you query the Registry to find them. Lets get real here please. CCmp are metadata they get stored in the Registry and you can use Filtered Queries to return them. Included in the FilteredQuery is the ability to search on ExternalID - aka UID. My version works just fine this way. Sounds like yours will have square wheels and oval tracks?!? DW.
