Subject: RE: Last Call on Requirements Document ?
On second thoughts ... and due to pressure of other activities inside Commerce One, I find I'm incomplete agreement with Nicolas in delaying requirements freeze. So how about Friday 7 January which is the end of the first full week of January. The only concern I have is that this means we will have just three elapsed weeks before the nextr ebXML conference in Orlando. On Nicolas's second point, I agree that we should focus developing or looking for standards that provide "core" requirements first on the assumption that everything else can be layered on top. However I think that we do need to look a bit beyond the "core" to make sure that they can probably be implemented and that we do not go in a direction which would make their implementation require a lot of rework. I've made a first pass of the requirements document (attached) to identify what is "Non-core" but would appreciate the views of others. I also propose that, in the next revision, I remove any italics that referenced the original document that we produced.

David, Given the holidays (mine has already started :) I think it will be tough to freeze the requirements before the 23rd. As a general comment and in the interest of moving forward aggressively, I think there is value in distinguishing between truly transport level requirements (e.g. reliable, secure transport of XML messages over HTTP and/or SMTP) and higher level requirements (e.g. non-repudiation, queuing, persistence, sequencing, pub/sub, roll-back/recovery etc. etc.). IMHO, drawing a distinction between core requirements and optional ones may turn out to be the pragmatic way to move forward.
