Message text written by Martin W Sachs > This sounds like a good way to handle the Registry's CPP. I do want to point out, however, that since the CPP contains only IT parameters, it isn't obvious that the CPP is what you want to search on to locate a desirable registry. First and foremost, that registry URL has to point to a page that contains "business" information about the registry - industry or industries it supports, etc. That's the primary information that the spidering tools have to find. Regards, Marty <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Marty, Thanks for thought. Yes, I'm seeing that the CPP supports the first pass; now you know that the registry is out there, and some basic information, like what queries it will allow, and then you can query it to find out if it contains the Classification you are interested in (what the user keyed in as the search), and that will identify the domain knowledge. At that point you present the options to the user - here's the following classifications that match your request - pick ones you want me to search from there, and I'll go ask those associated registries. If we wanted to get fancy we could also have the registry tell you how many entries it has for that classification - to optimize the search to the top 10 registries in that category. DW.
