Hi John,

I feared this would happen again. I just got a rejection notice once
again from my attempt to post the following message to the ebSOA TC
list. I am not sure why this is happening for I am a registered member.
How can I get this to the ebSOA TC list quickly?

As you may already know, we have been in the process of formalizing an
IPR proposal to the OASIS ebSOA TC regarding our donation of a complete
set of specifications to serve as a basis and starting point for the
ebSOA TC. Part of the process is to solicit feed back from Jamie Clark
to ensure completeness of the proposal on our part prior to forwarding
the proposal to this TC group. We very much understand, appreciate, and
empathise with the additional work we have asked of Jamie up and above
his current busy schedule. In the absence of any negative feedback from
OASIS at this point, we are encouraged to proceed on the basis and
assumption that Jamie's position in this regard is positive and would
now like to offer up our proposal to you with the understanding that we
will gladly review Jamie's comments and observations when we
get them and potentially adjust where necessary to suit OASIS accordingly.

ebXMLsoft IPR Proposal:

ebXMLsoft will submit the following detailed specifications to the OASIS
ebSOA TC for acceptance by the ebSOA TC and formal adoption into the
body of the ebSOA work (the abbreviation SOA refers to Service Oriented
Architecture). The submission consists of prior work on the Federated
Enterprise Reference Architecture (FERA) by ebXMLsoft who have sole
rights to the FERA work; and that work applies to the following ebSOA

     * ebSOA Information Model (IM) that provides support for all types
       of collaborations in ebSOA. ebSOA IM can be stored in a standard
       registry like OASIS ebXML Registry or OASIS UDDI Registry and used
       to provide context and content informational support for
       collaborative processes. ebSOA IM is presented in a form of a XML
       document we call the Collaborative Process Information Document
       (CPID) that can be formatted in either OASIS ebXML or OASIS UDDI
       standard registry. CPID is currently formatted in OASIS ebXML
     * ebSOA Collaboration Semantics (CS) enables full semantic
       integration of SOA architectural components bringing all of them
       together in the powerful ebSOA architecture capable of supporting
       business process collaborations of any type and complexity.
     * The complete FERA run-time architecture with all components and
       their integration interfaces defined that forms the basis for a
       normative instance of an ebSOA run-time model. Please see
       ebXMLsoft’s FERA/ebSOA Run-Time Architecture diagram:

In making this contribution it should be noted that standards
convergence is a very important aspect of the ebXMLsoft FERA work
because it references (where needed) the best available standard
components based on the standard components’ completeness and
functionality (i.e., OASIS ebXML BP, W3C SOAP with WS-Security and
WS-Reliability, OASIS ebXML Messaging, OASIS ebXML Registry, OASIS UDDI,
OASIS UBL, OASIS XACML, OASIS SAML, etc.). As such, we believe this
aligns completely with the charter and goals of the OASIS ebSOA TC.

Further ebXMLsoft in donating this body of work to the OASIS ebSOA TC,
the acceptance of which by the TC will imply:

     * Fully endorsing the proposed ebSOA normative instance model based
       on FERA and ensuring formal recognition in the contributors
       section of the ebSOA specifications of the ebXMLsoft role in
       providing it.  (It is very important for ebXMLsoft to receive
       visible recognition, current and ongoing, for the contributing
       detailed specifications being offered up by ebXMLsoft).
     * The normative ebSOA model based on FERA to be retained as a
       complete reference package, that may later be refined and enhanced
       by the ebSOA TC, but references to it cannot be summarily removed
       from the ebSOA specification(s).
     * The FERA work being donated is intended to be utilized by OASIS as
       a starting point to build from thereafter through the normal OASIS
       TC process as specification enhancements naturally emerge over the
       course of time. The body of the original FERA documents work
       should be placed at the OASIS ebSOA TC portal (Kavi) and links to
       this remain publically accessible through the completion of the
       ebSOA TC work.

Subject to the acceptance of these provisos ebXMLsoft is prepared to
donate to the OASIS ebSOA TC the body of work contained in the existing
FERA work "as is" and without any licensing or intellectual property
right (IPR) restrictions.  Further ebXMLsoft attests that this donation
is made without any prior or pending IPR impediments being applicable or
attached to this body of work to the best knowledge of ebXMLsoft and
that the work conforms to the OASIS IPR requirements for the ebSOA TC.
