Subject: RE: initial draft of CPP-CPA Specification


	here some comments:

	I understand this but what is the discriminating factor is
	the "business functionality". I mean, independently on the fact
	that an application is given out to some ASP, it remains an
	application in the sense that it implements the activity that
	needs to be performed.
	A collaboration describes the choreography under which 
	activities may be performed.

	In a Business Process Modelling way, this would correspond
	to the logic evaluating the transition to a new state.

	I am not sure I am buying it completely.
	What you say would imply that the "middleware" would
	be intelligent enough to decide that it is not worth
	to bother the legacy.
	I would like to have this, though (as written in my paper)

	Good luck ! Looking forward for this
