Subject: OASIS TC call for participation: ebXML Implementation,Interoperability, and Conformance TC
A new OASIS technical committee is being formed. The OASIS ebXML Implementation, Interoperability, and Conformance Technical Committee has been proposed by a number of ebXML PoC participants. The request for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS TC process, and is appended to this email. To become a member of this new TC you must 1) be an employee of an OASIS member organization or an Individual member of OASIS, 2) notify the committee chair, Philippe De Smedt (PDeSmedt@viquity.com) of your intent to participate at least 15 days prior to the first meeting, and 3) participate in the first meeting on 6 August, 2001. You should also subscribe to the TC's discussion list. (For the procedure for joining after the first meeting see the TC process at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml.) The mail list firstname.lastname@example.org is for committee discussions. TC members as well as any other interested OASIS members should subscribe to the list. Do this by sending a message to email@example.com with the word "subscribe" as the body of the message. (Note that subscribing to the mail list does not make you a member of the TC; to become a member you must contact the TC chair as described in the preceeding paragraph.) </karl> ================================================================= Karl F. Best OASIS - Director, Technical Operations 978.667.5115 x206 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.oasis-open.org Proposal for an OASIS Technical Committee on ebXML Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance Name of TC: "OASIS ebXML Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance Technical Committee" Statement of purpose: It is the intent of the IIC TC to provide a means for software vendors to create infrastructure and applications which adhere to the ebXML specifications and are able to interoperate. As such, the purpose of the IIC TC includes the following: 1. A conformance plan; 2. A set of reference implementation guidelines; 3. A set of base line interoperability tests; 4. To provide guidelines and direction for third-party creation of conformance laboratories; 5. To provide of feedback, when nesseccary, to the appropriate organization(s) responsible for a specification. Additionally, it is intended that the work of this TC leverage the work of the OASIS Interoperability Conformance TC. Furthermore, the IIC TC will align its work with the ebXML Joint Coordinating Committee, established to coordinate the ebXML activities conducted under both OASIS and UN/CEFACT, and with the work taking place in all of the other ebXML TCs, whether under OASIS or UN/CEFACT. IIC TC will also cooperate closely with other standard bodies whose work is leveraged in present or future ebXML specifications. These include, but are not limited to, W3C and UN/CEFACT. Deliverables: The initial deliverable of the IIC TC is a conformance plan that, at a minimum, deals with the Messaging aspect of ebXML. The participants aim to produce a first draft of this specification by approximately three months from the first meeting of the TC. The ultimate deliverable of the TC is to be a coordinated set of implementation guidelines and interoperability tests. In addition, the TC will work with (a) third-party organization(s) to help it (them) establish an ebXML conformance test laboratory. The persons proposing the formation of the TC intend to base their work as closely as possible on the ebXML infrastructure specifications. It is the hope of the proposers to finish the first implementation of this concept within a year of TC formation. Language in which the TC will conduct business: English Date, time and place of first meeting: Via teleconference at 12 Noon, PST, on Monday, August 6th, 2001. Proposed meeting schedule for first year: Teleconference calls will be held by the full TC on the second Monday of each month at 10AM PST, except when a face-to-face meeting is scheduled during the same week. A tentative date for a face-to-face meeting is August 13th, 2001, in San Jose, CA. Two to three face-to-face meetings are anticipated for the first year.
